In the Hardware tab you'll see some options for NumLock on KDE Startup. Be sure to click in "Turn on". Click Apply, Exit the dialog and reboot. You should now get the NumLock on by default. There's also an option to Turn Off for those who rather have the NumLock off as default.
Thanks for the suggestion.
Sorry, forgot to mention I'm using Linux Mint Mate rather than KDE. There doesn't seem to be that setting in Mate - or at least I can't find it.
