I have just tried what you described on a thinkpad lenovo T500, without
any problem, except that the thinkpad BIOS does a couple of funky

- depending on the numlock bios setting, the numlock led will be
  driven by the OS (synchronized mode) or handled internally in the BIOS
  (independent mode).
- in synchronized mode, whenever the internal numlock led is lit, the
  right part of the internal keyboard acts as the keypad keys.
