I'm trying to lock the function key on my K3500 wireless keyboard with no success.
Tried the following:
1. Fn+Esc key - noting happens (I allsow tried it with all F-keys just to be sure...)
2. Searched the bios settings and couldn't find any that references the Fn key or similar (hotkey ets...)
I would apreatiate an answer since this would greatly improve my work.
Thank you in advance.

I just took a look at the image of the K3500 wireless keyboard.
There is no lock function of the FN key. That exists, as far as I am aware, only on notebook PCs.
The HP notebooks I have used have had an action keys option which lets the user enable or disable a lock function of the Fn key.
The only use of the Fn key (with an underscore on your keyboard) is in conjunction with the secondary functions of the F1-F12 keys.
Fn+Esc is a function used on some notebook which invokes a system information feature while logged into a Windows OS.

If your K3500 is connected to a desktop, you wont find any settings in your bios.
Lock/unlock Fn keys option is (mostly) only found on laptops due to their smaller sized keyboards.
Maybe you could find a hidden option in the bios, but you will only be able to enable/disable it through an EFI-shell.
