I have a Linux Mint host and a Windows 7 Pro guest OS in Vmware Player 12 with VMware additions are installed.
Each time the mouse and the keyboard are "grabbed" by the virtual machine, at the moment of grabbing the numlock remains on, however the vm disables the numlock (light) in my keyboard when the keyboard is "ungrabbed". When the mouse is hovered in the host os, the light of the numlock is off but the keys work as if it is on.
Has anyone else had the same problem? This is very frustrating as I use the guest os and the host very often back and forth.
