How do you keep Num Lock on when entering a virtual machine in VMWare Workstation 7.1.0 on Windows 7 x64 so you don't have to enter that key every time?

Go to EDIT SETTINGS on the VM, click on the OPTIONS tab and go to BOOT OPTIONS. Check the box that says "....force entry into the BIOS setup screen." Reboot and enter the BIOS. Go into KEYBOARD FEATURES on the main BIOS screen and change the Numlock state to ON.
