Set the Capslock, Numlock or Scroll Lock to be enabled or disabled at startup.

1. Go to Start and type Regedit. (Click RUN then type REGEDIT in XP)

2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard

3. Open InitialKeyboardIndicators. Set the value to one of the following numbers

0 – All Keys off
1 – Caps Lock on
2 – Num Lock on
3 – Caps Lock and Num Lock on
4 – Scroll Lock on
5 – Caps Lock and Scroll Lock on
6 – Num Lock and Scroll Lock on
7 – Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock on

Try This :)

Since this didn't work on my office Win 7 box (I finally realized that the reason my Num Lock was off every morning because I log onto it with my laptop/Remote Desktop every night), I pieced this script together. Paste in Notepad, name it notepad.vbs and put it in your Startup folder. Works for me.

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
If objWord.NumLock then WScript.Quit [exitcode]
WshShell.SendKeys "{NUMLOCK}"

You can usually set the on or off state of Num lock in the bios Setup of the mboard.

Ranmjeetks, SWAG, seems to me that Windows should start in the same configuration it was in when closed. Proceeding on that assumption, set the lock as you like THEN close using the option under 'file' (rather than the handier 'X'. Only needs to be done once.) to force Windows to 'remember'. Then reboot, it should be as you closed it.
tspencer103 , suspect same applies to you. Redo your Laptop and see?
