Default Disable Panic Button on 2011 Sorrento SX

I have a odd one for you, and need some help.

I have a 2011 Sorrento SX, with the smart key thing (no actual key, press the button to start and stop engine).

Is there any way to completely disable the panic button on the remote?

I keep bumping into it in my pocket, and setting off the alarm.

I have NEVER needed the panic button, and think it is a terrible idea, and just want it gone. Considering ripping the remote apart to physically remove the button, but would rather just disable it if possible.

Please, no silly comments about hanging the key fob on a chain to keep from bumping into it, I just want the dang panic button disabled either in the suv, or on the remote....

Any serious idea's?
