Sometimes I really hate Windows. Two triggers for this are updates change the power management settings to default, so the screensaver doesn't work any more, and the Caps Lock key loses its toggled state at every reboot or sleep cycle.

I had the second one solved a few years ago, with a scheduled task at bootup to run a simple custom NumLockChanger program. About 9 months ago or so it stopped working. Played with it a bit, and for some reason could never get it to work, although it had previously responded to the 31/131 task just fine. Cussed a lot, and never got to the bottom of it.

Changed the event being responded to to 'unlocking of workstation' yesterday. Now it works fine, although I don't have the NumLock key activated during password entry. Good enough! Microsoft - don't change this any more!!! And fix the power management bug!

1 out of 2 - success!
