    I have the white G5 keyboard (Model A1048) and there is no num lock or scroll lock key. My 2-year old got a hold of my keyboard and pushed a whole bunch of everything. Both scroll lock and num lock are now on. How do I change change them back? I'm just about ready to call him back and have at it!

    If anyone else cares

    I finally figured it out. Num lock is shift + clear and scroll lock is shift + f14

    For Apple keyboards KVM use:

    X Close


    Doc #: 279

    Title:
    Invoking Hotkey Mode on a Mac Without a Num Lock

    Details:
    Some newer Mac keyboards no longer feature a Num Lock key. In this case, the Clear key can be substituted for the Num Lock.

    The hot key invocation sequence is now as follows:

    Press and hold the Clear Key
    Press and release the [-]
    Release the Clear

    To switch the Scroll lock hot key to [CTRL][CTRL], then
    Press and release [T]
    Press and release [ENTER]
