Enabling Toggle Keys
Everyone knows how frustrating it can be when you're typing furiously while looking away from the screen, and you accidentally push the Caps Lock key. Having to back up and retype that sentence or two can be a real time waster. A setting in Microsoft's Accessibility Options lets you know Caps Lock has been engaged by sounding a tone. It's called Toggle Keys.

To enable Toggle Keys, go to Start, Control Panel and open Accessibility Options. Check the Use Toggle Keys box, and Windows will let you know with little beeps whenever you engage or disengage Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock. Once you get used to the sounds, you'll always know your lock settings without having to look at your computer screen.
