It’s just a nuisance.

KDE Tip - Switch NumLock On at Startup

http://fosswire.com

I personally like the num lock key to be switched on by default once I’ve logged in to KDE. For me, it’s much more useful to have access to the numeric keypad as, just that, a numeric keypad, than it is to have a glorified arrow key navigation pad.
