AFAIK it shouldn't show up if you have a model with physical indicators.

It shows up on my T61 - which has physical indicators on the screen bevel - there's a small text-block coming up over the clock in the lower right corner, saying "Caps Lock on/off" and "Num Lock on/off" and "Scroll Lock on/off"


So the physical indicators got nothing to do with it.


Running Vista Pro 64 with an odd assortment of Lenovo-apps running/installed (not entirely sure which one is responsible for this behavior, unfortunately, since I've reinstalled and removed several on and off to see which ones I really need and which are useless).
