1. Number lock. If it's lit up, it means the number keypad at the end of the keyboard is switched on.

2. Caps lock. If it's lit up, caps lock is on.

3. Usually scroll lock (to this day, I have no idea what it does), but I've seen it as "shift" before (as in holding down the shift key).

That makes sense - and green means on, while white means off.

For whatever reason, I never noticed these while offline.

All of my other computers have had indicator lights on the keyboard for these, so when my last-but-one computer had them onscreen instead it threw me for a while! :P

On android, the third one means you're downloading something.
