I am curious as to why the numlock button lights up when I log on and when the computer shuts down. I heard it could have something to do with auditing. I usually click it off every time it comes on. any ideas?

When your computer is first starting it goes through the Power On Self-test (POST) where it runs a diagnostic on the computer's hardware. This happens before the BIOS initiates the start of the operating system. The keyboard is hardware, this is why the LED cycles.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
