    I got a new MCB (not a 2016 model) a few weeks ago and one of the first things I do with a new computer is disable the caps lock key. And the setting works great, until I shut the machine off. When I boot it up the next morning, the caps lock key has reset to default. This resets every time I restart the machine.

    Anyone know how to stop it from resetting?

    What method are you using to disable the capslock key?

    I've noticed this. I disable CAPS LOCK as a matter of course, and it keeps turning itself back on.

    Not a big deal by any means, I just don't care for CAPS LOCK.

    I change it in the modifier keys under keyboard in system preferences. It's a system option, I've done it on all my other Macs, this one just won't stay turned off.

    Not the end of the world, just super annoying because I'm so used to it being turned off I have to pay attention to not hit it.

    It looks like I got it to stick. I went and changed all the modifier keys to something random and rebooted. They all stayed changed. Returned the keys to their correct setting and left caps lock as no action, did a reboot and it stayed. I've restarted my computer at least 4 times since then and the setting has still stayed.

    I tried this and it did not help me. Has the setting remained properly set on your computer?

    Yes, it has stayed after many reboots.
