Windows 7: Keyboard lights are frozen

Keyboard lights are frozen

I've only noticed this on Windows 7, I have NO idea what's going on.

I know sometimes when your computer is badly frozen that the keyboard won't respond and the lights won't even respond when you press numlock and capslock.

Well my keyboard works just fine (I'm typing from it now) but the LIGHTS do not! The numlock light is on, the capslock and scroll lock lights are off. They won't change no matter what I do. Same with numlock. The lights stays on even when it's off.

If I press capslock I still get capslock SEE. But the lights won't change. O.o

Obviously it's not a major issue that's inhibiting my experience but it is a little confusing because I can't tell what locks are on or off.

Ruled out that it isn't the keyboard itself by trying either another keyboard, or this one on another computer?

^Well at the moment I don't have either to test. I left my older keyboard at my old apartment (It's attached to my older computer loll).

I'm going power off my computer again and see if it persists.

Do a complete power off - that is, unplug the computer from the wall too in order to remove the +5Vsb standby voltages present on the motherboard when the computer is simply turned off. Alternatively, if your power supply has a master switch in back, you can turn that off for a few seconds, then power up and see if it fixes your problem. If USB, try another port.
