    Currently running Win 10.0.15061 on an Acer Predator laptop. On system resume from sleep or hibernate, I always have to manually turn on numlock before entering my pin. I've tried the registry setting "fix," the disabling fast boot "fix," and the shutting down from lock screen with numlock on method, all to know avail. (all as suggested in http://forums.windowscentral.com/windows-10/372414-why-isnt-numlock-defaulting-windows-10-a.html ; http://forums.windowscentral.com/windows-10/375946-how-do-i-set-num-lock-windows-10-startup.html ; http://forums.windowscentral.com/windows-10/384712-how-do-i-keep-numlock-reboot-windows-10-a.html)

    Through searching, I don't see any threads on this in the past year - has anyone discovered a permanent fix?

    Did you try simply refreshing windows 10?

    I have been trialling a powershell script for past hour or two and it has been hit and miss.

    Try the following see if you have any luck with it :)

    The trigger script is:

    $wsh = New-Object -ComObject WScript.Shell
    $wsh.SendKeys('{NUMLOCK}')

    Make sure you run powershell with admin rights.

    To remove a registered job, use unregister -name TurnNumLockOn (or whatever name you used). You can check running scheduled jobs by the scheduledjob command.
