Remap function keys so they don't require the "Fn" press

I'm using a Lenovo Ideapad s405 with Fedora 18. I switch between Gnome and Cinnamon currently.

I would like to flip the behavior of the f-keys. ie: require the "Fn" key to adjust brightness, volume, etc.

Having to press the "Fn" key to use plain F11 for example, is a real pain.

I've been searching and have yet to find a solution. There doesn't seem to be a setting in the BIOS either.

Any help would be appreciated.
