I agree.

By that, I think what Wakeup means is to try pressing the numlock button located on your keyboard to ensure that it is engaged. If it is not, then by default, when Windows XP boots, the numlock status if OFF.

In Windows 98, the numloack default status was ON.

SUMMARY
This article describes how to enable the NUM LOCK key for the logon screen.



MORE INFORMATION
WARNING : If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

The status of the NUM LOCK key is specific for each user, and by default, it is disabled. If you want to enable the NUM LOCK key for use before a user presses CTRL+ALT+DEL to log on, you must use Registry Editor to change the default behavior. To enable NUM LOCK before a user logs on, use Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe) to locate the following registry key:

HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Keyboard
Change the value of the InitialKeyboardIndicators value in this key from 0 to 2.
