Num Lock sets after RDP Connection

When connecting to an ASUS S46C (Computer 1) laptop from an HP Probook 4530s (Computer 2) via Microsoft's Remote Desktop Application, I noticed that Computer 1 has Num Lock enabled.  When the user starts typing on Computer 1, the text is all messed up because somehow the number function has been enabled.  Nothing has been done to Computer 1 that would indicate a change to this and it seems to happen after EVERY connection.  Both computers are Windows 7 Professional.  Any ideas?!  I'm at a loss!

Software/Hardware used:
Windows 7 Professional, RDP, Remote Desktop, ASUS S46C, HP Probook 4530s

    Some keyboards have/don’t have num lock key. If comp 1 has, then just press the num lock/nmlk key or hold down the FN key with nm lock key. If it not presents then, click Start > All Progs > Accessories > Accessibility > On Screen keyboard > nlk after connecting thru rdp. Or press FN key and Scroll key/ number lock key.
