hi jeldumcp2

there's an option to disable/enable the function keys in bios. please, set it to disable so you won't have to press fn key.

please, post back the results.

esteffenb, in normal circumstances, in bios, you can disable the fn key usage by disabling the "hotkeys". please, check your bios.

nope. unfortunately the z500's doesn't have it (great job lenovo, btw...). see for yourself - http://service.lenovo.partner-management.com/content/CoursewarePublic/15415/Z500BiosSimulator.swf

 

 thinkpads used to have a keyboard customizer tool. they should make this for the ideapads as well. would solve this problem in an instant.

un-installing the lenovo power management may help you.
