Solutions for CapsLock / NumLock indicator always show on the screen when enabled

Question

Some of my friends using ThinkPads and realize when the numeric lock or caps lock is ON and the indicator would just stay there for a long time. Is there anyway to have the indicators display for a few seconds instead of staying there for a long time?

Answer

May apply to most ThinkPad with newer version of On-screen display.

 

For those who wants to prevent the indicator to always show on the screen when CapLock / NumLock is On or Off, at the Desktop, right-click and go to Screen Resolution, click Advanced Settings, go to the On Screen Display tab, ensure Show the indicator for a few seconds are selected for both While the numeric lock or the caps lock is ON / OFF.

I do not get the CapsLock indication on screen. I tried this solution, but I do not have the onscreen display option itself. My laptop is E430 operating on Windows 7 Pro. Please advise

How are the indicators controlled indepenently?

 

I want to have caps lock icon ON when caps lock is activated, but the lum lock icon OFF when num lock is activated.

Same qustion as above: How to handle the caps lock and num lock independently?

 

On my E431, I need Caps Lock visible when Caps Lock is ON (and does not show it when it is OFF). I don't want this feature for Num Lock since this lap does not have Number Keyboard. Unfortunately when I do this for getting Caps Lock ON displayed always, the Num Lock HID is also getting displayed permanently. Smiley Indifferent

Ya, right, . . . but maybe there should be a light under the CapsLock and NumLock keys like the one under the Fn key.... Which is a waste, as it's on all the time when in the NORMAL F1-12 function. Ummm??? In fact the light should be on, when using the special Lenovo assigned functions. It's reverse thinking. Another workaround for a workstation,

I just did an update that defaulted the numlock indicator on, all the time.

In all the things I have to do this morning, I had to fix it.

Please, stop it!

 

I am starting to think that the computer user experience has past its prime.
