Under awesome WM, I found Mod4 + numpad <1-9> does not work as same as Mod4 + 1-9 even though the NumLock is on. I think it's convenient to use Mod4 + numpad <1-9> to switch between tags. How to bind this?

I got the numpad key map by using xev. So, it may be easy to map numpad to tag switcher as the following:

-- Numpad: [0-9] = [#90, #87-#89, #83-#85, #79-#81]
local np_map = { 87, 88, 89, 83, 84, 85, 79, 80, 81 }
for i = 1, keynumber do
   globalkeys = awful.util.table.join(
      globalkeys,
      awful.key({ modkey }, "#" .. np_map[i],
        function ()
           local screen = mouse.screen
           if tags[screen][i] then
              awful.tag.viewonly(tags[screen][i])
           end
        end),
      awful.key({ modkey, "Control" }, "#" .. np_map[i],
        function ()
           local screen = mouse.screen
           if tags[screen][i] then
              awful.tag.viewtoggle(tags[screen][i])
           end
        end),
      awful.key({ modkey, "Shift" }, "#" .. np_map[i],
        function ()
           if client.focus and tags[client.focus.screen][i] then
              awful.client.movetotag(tags[client.focus.screen][i])
           end
        end),
      awful.key({ modkey, "Control", "Shift" }, "#" .. np_map[i],
        function ()
           if client.focus and tags[client.focus.screen][i] then
              awful.client.toggletag(tags[client.focus.screen][i])
           end
        end))
end
