Unhappy K70: num lock, caps lock, ???

Hello there,

just got my new K70, and from a "mechanical" point of view I am pretty happy.
But: not sure if this is a Ubuntu 14.04 thing, or maybe due the fact that I am connecting the K70 to the port replicator of my Lenovo W510 ...

Anyway: in order to have Caps lock and num lock work correctly, I had to push the "bios" switch to the far left (directly where it says BIOS, no number above). In any other position, the LEDs for num lock and caps lock would not show up when pressing the corresponding keys; and for some, numlock would not work at all.

But: when I turn the switch to this setting, the third "indication" (the one with the arrow pointing down, right to the caps lock LED) keeps blinking all the time. That is very annoying.

Wondering: what is this third LED about in the first place? And is there any way to get rid of the blinking (besides putting a piece of paper there, what I did and looks like so cheap on my expensive keyboard)?
