Laptop numpad enter does not evaluate cell


It's common knowledge that the numberpad "enter" will evaluate cells 
without needing the "shift+enter" when using the normal keyboard enter 
button.  I have a 17" laptop with full keyboard + numpad but when I use 
the enter button on the numpad it behaves like the normal enter, i.e. i 
still have to use "shift+enter".  When i plug a USB keyboard in, the 
numpad enter works as expected and just evaluates the cell.

I have played with numlock and looked briefly into control panel 
settings to see if there's some setting that is not right but there is 
nothing obvious. A quick google search turned up nothing obvious.  I'm 
wondering if others have encountered this.
