Is there any way to turn OFF the numlock on an external keyboard?

    It's hard to retrain myself to use the cursor keys, because they're farther down the keyboard, and require you to move your whole arm instead of just rotate it. I much prefer using the numeric keypad as the cursor keys (old dog, new tricks, you know).

    Is there a utility that will allow you to do this? hitting the "num lock" seems to do absolutely nothing. Mostly I use Text Wrangler and MonoDevelop.

    Searches seem to say this was possible in earlier versions of OSX, but I'm a late comer, so I don't know. Or could it just be my Microsoft Keyboard?

    I found a utility called "KeyRemap4Macbook" that does this just great. Even makes the home/end keys work like I want. :)
