Default Turn off Caps lock without keyboard?

Hello,

Bit of an odd one but I hope someone can help.

I'm working remotely on a number of laptops. One of the things I need to do is run a script that is designed not to work if the laptop has Caps Lock on. Usually by the time I realise it's on, they've gone elsewhere and can't be tracked down!

So... can I turn off Caps Lock within windows?

TIA!
My TV is broken!
Edit: refunded 515 for TV 1.5 years out of warranty - thank you Sale of Goods Act!

Only thing I can think of is to run the On Screen Keyboard and click caps lock. Should work. (Start>All Programs>Accessories>Accessibility>On screen keyboard)

Sure, if you want the quickest and most specific method.

By the way I'm using Filemaker Pro... is the script compatible with that?
