    Anyone have this issue?!?! I remote desktop in from work into my laptop at home and when I get there and do whatever I need to do, and then when I logout and go home, my numlock is on when I get home.. Is it because my numlock was on on my work computer when I remoted in or is this a defect?!?!

    Yeah, that happens to me as well.

    I have never looked into a fix for it :hs:

    It seems to reverse the settings of numlock, because when I RDP into my desktop then logoff it turns numlock off.

    Personally never had a problem with numlock, for me it's CAPS LOCK. When i VNC or RDP into a french version keyboard CAPS does the opposite.
