I have a Powerbook G4 and I did something the other day now when caps lock is off everything is uppercase and when num locks is off only the numeric keypad works on the laptop.

so to type normally I have to have CapsLock pressed and NumLocks.

I think i pressed a combination of keys, but I cant figure out how to reset it. Does anyone have an idea how to reset the keyboard??

Maybe System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard -> Modifier Keys -> "Restore Defaults"

Tried that with no luck. I think something strange is going on with the keyboard, it just started working normally again today without changing any settings.
