Not really so true.
If my FN-key is pressed, and I hit letters J, K and L, they act as Numpad 1, 2 and 3 - and so forth. That means, the FN-key taped, you could not even write a normal text. Turning off the Numlock, which would be something like FN-F8, things would go even
more crazy, as now the letters would work as Object-operators in NVDA.
In very short terms, taping the FN-key, is the least effecient way of all. Sorry.

As I understand it, the problem you describe won't occur. When the fn key is down, it is equivalent to it being up under traditional operation. I haven't heard that the effect of this change is limited to specific keys. Indeed,
I heard someone say, on another list, that they couldn't use alt f4 under this change because f4 was being treated as a function key combination. As far as restart is concerned, I have no idea if there will be any effect.

Also the problem with taping the key down, is that for any other keys that use Fn+key combinations, they will always act as if the key was down. it also might not register properly when the machine restarts. It sounds like it would be worth
getting sighted help to get into the bios and change this setting once and for all. At least, once it's done you can just use the PC normally again.
