    Numlock retains settings on restart


    Hi,
    I tried searching and didn't find anything about this, but it's highly likely that this has already been brought up. What gives with the numlock setting resetting every time you restart with Win10? This never occurred with any other version of Windows (at least not to my memory) and for those of us who use numbers in the password, and after YEARS of never having to activate it upon restart, it's kind of a pain in the butt to type in my password, swing over to the numpad, and then have it not respond. I always try to remember to turn it on before I type in my password, but sometimes (often) I forget.

    I don't want it to be on by default - I just want it to remember the state from last restart. I found a workaround using a registry edit and stuff via google, but I think it should just remember the state by default.

    I'll double check in my BIOS but I'm positive it's enabled there to no avail.
