on netbook turning off numlock invokes home/end keys instead of letter keysview story

http://askubuntu.com – on Asus 1001PX, Fn+numlock turns on numbers OK. But when pressed again instead of going back to letters, it uses the arrow and home/end features of a standard 104 keyboard.

http://serverfault.com – Background: I use a cluster with my coworkers and if anyone writes too many big files at the same time I can't even move the cursor in vim (the horror!). I'm not sure if it is more related to the number of files open or the "bandwith" of hard drive being used but it definitely only happens when a big write operation is taking place (including downloading big files).
