    Numlock on Lock Screen


    I am having an issue with my numlock disabling on the lock screen on windows 8.1 Pro.
    Here is what happens:

    -The numlock is on at start and works fine.
    -Then I login to windows.
    -The numlock still works.
    -I do a ctrl, alt, delete to lock the screen.
    -At this point the numlock disables again.
    -The same thing happens if I wait for the screen saver and lock screen to come up at 10 Mins.

    Here is what I have already done to fix:

    I have disabled fast boot, I have made the registry change to InitialKeyboadIndicators.

    Does the same thing happen when pressing the Windows key + the L key?
