HP Envy m6 k010dv running LM17- Number keypad is disabled with logoff

HP Evy as above. Each time I loggoff, the keypad is disabled and must be turned on.
How can I make keypad active at start up, and remain enabled during logoff?

I believe this is a service that starts on boot. I know, because I had a distro running on my old laptop that always turned numlock on and I was wondering why my password didn't work.

Looks like the package you want is called numlockx.
