Is there any program I can use to have on-screen notification for the status of my numlock? My laptop keyboard does not have any LEDs for the numlock and I never know whether it's on or off without trying and checking. Something that displays numlock-on/numlock-off in notification area would be nice.

You didn't mention your operating system.

  • Windows: TrayStatus does exactly what you want.
  • Linux: one option is key-mon, there's a .deb package in the download section
