I have an old laptop (ok, a netbook) with no keypad that, every once in a while, reverses the "normal" state of the NumLock key so at a password screen, I'm trying to type my password but the keyboard registers numbers.

The first couple of times it happened, I spent an awful lot of time trying and retrying, until I typed out the password in the user name field to show up in the clear. I can't recall what OS that was (some version of Linux), but it didn't have that "show password" option...
