A useful link from the Apple site:
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=304270 which shows the
mapping between Apple and PC keyboards/functions. Of note is the fact that
the "Clear" key on the Apple keyboard is numlock.
Registry settings for forcing numlock on when booting Windows
Open the registry and go to:
Change the value of InitialKeyboardIndicators to whichever state you wish...
0 - Indicators off
1 - Caps Lock on
2 - Num Lock on
3 - Caps Lock on and Num Lock on
4 - Scroll Lock on
5 - Caps Lock on and Scroll Lock on
6 - Num Lock on and Scroll Lock on
7 - Caps Lock on, Num Lock on, and Scroll Lock on
Close regedit. A reboot may be required.
An alternate solution is a VB script:
set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Save file as "numlock.vbs" (in quotes to ensure that notepad doesnt automatically name it numlock.vbs.txt)
Then copy and paste the file (OR a shortcut to the file) numlock.vbs into C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start menu\Programs\Startup
This causes numlock to become enabled AFTER login (which is the only drawback, if you needed it on BEFORE the login window, for password purposes)
