First Of all the other comands that the Insert key on the numpad
that NVDA uses work just fine. it is just the NVDA Control F which
the nvda key is the one on the numpad that i am refering to.
as to the saving i have that check box checked in preferences
But like i said for some reason that i don't know it will
sometimes to into read only mode.
What i find interesting is that on the laptop I have the NVDA
control F works fine using the numpad on the laptop which has a
full sized keyboard.

So you're saying if you use extended insert in the
NVDA+control+f command it works but not numpad
Does numpad insert work for other NVDA commands?
If not, the two likely options are that you have numlock
turned on, or that you perhaps in NVDA's keyboard settings
have unchecked to use "numpad insert as an NVDA modifier
key". You can get to those settings by pressing
NVDA+control+k or NVDA+n then choose preferences then keyboard
settings (using whichever NVDA modifier key is working).
In terms of not saving settings, NVDA has a checkbox "Save
settings on exit" in its general settings (NVDA+control+g or
NVDA+n then preferences then general). As long as that is
set, the current settings should be saved when you exit NVDA.
If you don't exit NVDA but rather shut the computer down, they
should still be saved as long as you do shut the computer down
and don't just hold the power button down or pull the power
cord out etc.
If you don't have that setting enabled, you can manually
save settings from the NVDA menu.
