get numbers lock to stay on for windows startup.
This works! It does not require a new powershell startup fix or registry edit.
Very fast and simple fix when Num Lock key is off when you start windows, and you hate that.

1) At the login screen press NumLock and make sure it is on.
2) Do not login
3) Reboot the computer
You should now find that the NumLock is on when they get to the login screen. This should work for all versions of Windows, but I can not vouch for Windows 8.
