Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. There is a new version of Feisty Fawn available, Herd 4 (, and we would be interested to find out if this issue still exists with it. Thanks in advance.

As reported before, the CapsLock, Numeric and Scroll lights are off when
Ubuntu starts to install in every session.
I tried it in Ubuntu 32 bit and in Kubuntu 64 bit. Both failed.
