When the function keys are set to just f1~f12 in the bios, or in the Lonovo windows settings, the 'esc' key gets the function of paper-display toggle.
This problem was also present in Yoga 3, but fixed with a bios update recently, as I may believe from other users.
Many other users have described this problem.
The ideapad-laptop handles most special keys on various Lenovo Laptops
including the Yoga line. Unfortunately, the Yoga 3 11/13/14 models have
one important exception, which is the Fn-ESC combination.
On other Lenovo Laptops, this is FnLock, which switches the function keys
between the primary (Mute, Vol down, Vol up, ...) and the secondary (F1,
F2, F3, ...) behavior. On the new machines, FnLock is only available
through BIOS setup (possibly through a yet-to-be-implemented feature
in this driver) but not through Fn-ESC, but instead the ESC key itself
switched between ESC and a "Paper Display" app for Windows.
Unfortunately, that means that you can never have both ESC *and* the
function keys working at the same time without needing to press Fn on
one of them.
As pointed out in the official Lenovo Forum by dozens of users, this
makes the machine rather useless for any serious work .
I 'and many others', will hope Lenovo will look into this problem and will make a bios update to solve this problem.

I probably have a temporarely fix.
- press start button and type services.msc [enter
- search for YogaPLService en change it from automatic start to manual.
- Stop the service directly and test it.
For me this works for now.
