odd, mines never done the caps lock or numlock thing, it may just be only half plugged into the logic board but i suppose you dont want to crack it open as it's so new.
Never heard of the numlock and capslock keys being inverted, ever. That's a weird one.
One question, just out of curiosity: Does the numlock key on the MacBook have a light like the Pro models? I remember that iBooks (and I think even 12" PBs) didn't, which proved horribly confusing to new users who accidentally bumped F6 and had no idea that numlock even existed.
That's what you get for having baby elephant's legs instead of fingers!
Well they offered to replace it. That seems pretty good to me.
I'm just having the same problem. I'm writing from a fresh formated macbook: New installed and the parameter
ram is zapped. All softwareupdates are done and the keyboard is inverted. The numlocklight and the capslocklight must be on, otherwise the keyboard works only in capital letters (capslock off) or as numblock (numlock off).
It is the second macbook, that must be returned! The first has had a defective superdrive.
On monday, I will call Apple.

Same thing on my MBP but only with the Num-Lock key and it doesn't always happen. Basically i start up the computer and the Num-Lock key LED in on, however i can type letters as normal. If i turn it off i go into Num-lock mode!
But as i said it only happens 1 in every 5 times i start the computer so i think it may be a software bug. And it doesn't bother me that much to demand a replacement. However the caps-lock key must be very confusing.
Just fix the darn whine Apple!!!!! I can forgive the heat and this num-lock thing but the whine seems to hit a nerve in my brain.
EDIT: Try to boot from the OSX discs and use Disk Utility to repair disks and permissions. I did that last week and i think it hasn't happened since. Not sure that will help but it's worth a try.
Keyboard inverted - Problem solved
Force Quit (Option-Command-Escape)
Force Shut Down (press the power button for 10 seconds)
I had this happen with the caps lock once on my PB. I don't know how it happened, and I don't know how it got fixed.
same problem here....
Me too, all of a sudden (2-month-old MBP).
