Possibly the "break correctly" thoughts. If Numlock is on by default you
break laptop keyboards (with imbedded number pads). I also have on my
workbench four small IBM keyboards that have imbedded number pads. Most
"rack mount" keyboards I've seen are similar. I think it is a PITA when
machines boot with Numlock enabled.
Just a view from the other side of the fence.
