    Windows 7; Windows 8

    You will have to modify the registry key:
    Look into both:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard
    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard\

    Look for the string value "InitialKeyboardIndicators" and make the value set to '2'

    Now the second thing I found is that this will not work if your using a Microsoft Account to log in.

Hi! So, I've upgraded to Windows 8 RTM this weekend and I'm having this problem: Every time I boot the PC (shutdown or restart), the Num Lock key is off.
