Question Kenmore Gas range- Stovetop lockout feature

I recently bought Kenmore Gas range model # 75164 from Sears. It has a feature "Cooktop lockout". It can be set manually. But, when power outage occurs, it also automatically kicks in, which means I cannot use my Gas range stove top during power outages ! Is it possible to disable this feature and if so, how? Sears customer service did not have the answer; I'd appreciate if some can help me out here.

These are equipped with solenoid valves. I doubt if you can disable without tearing into and removing valve. How often do you loose power? Is it really worth the trouble. Sounds like a great time to go out to eat if you can find a place with power.
