Windows shortcut key combination (Windows key+Break) of the VAIO notebook doesn't display the System Properties dialog box.

On a standard desktop keyboard, the Pause key is combined with the Break key. However, this is not in the case of the keyboard on a notebook.
To access the System Properties dialog box when using a VAIO notebook, the key combination is Windows+Fn+Pause.

Note: To access the Pause function, the Fn key must be pressed.
