I have a mac mini 2011 with Lion. I have several usb standalone numeric
keypads here. They all work fine with numlock on. Unfortunately, numlock
does not turn off
. Thus, I am not able to use the navigation keys, which
is my main usage for the keypad. I've done a little googling on this subject.
I note that in a couple of cases, having "Mouse Keys" On in Universal Access can cause this problem.
I've tried it both ways with no success.

I have a small-footprint keyboard, which does not have its' own numlock.

Any ideas.
