Yoga (Lock) Function Keys- Help!

I just purchased the Yoga and I need to use Excel all the time for work, which requires constant use of the Function keys 1-12.  I want to lock my function keys and I have been going crazy trying to figure out how to do it on Windows 8.  I spent about 4 hours trying to do it.  Can someone please help me?

Is there a way to this on the fly without going through the BIOS? I would like to switch between the two behaviors of the keys as it pleases me. F-keys are nice when I code while lenovo keys are useful otherwise.
