A few questions about settings folders

1- If you try to do something that needs root password, a dialog is shown with a checkbox 'Remember password' giving user the possibility to remember only for the current session. In which folder is this checkbox state (not the password itself) saved?

2- in which folder is numlock state saved? EDITED: the solution is: create keyboards.xml inside home/guest/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/ and put this:

<channel name="keyboards" version="1.0">
  <property name="Default" type="empty">
    <property name="Numlock" type="bool" value="true"/>
    <property name="RestoreNumlock" type="bool" value="true"/>

RE-EDITED: it works, but oddly if you press CTRL or ALT or WIN then numlock LED turns off, although keyboard still responds as if numlock is on!

3- (I'm not completely sure if this is a XFCE specific question) new releases of Opera Browser use keyring to encrypt user's passwords. So when you first open Opera it asks you to create a password for the keyring which will be saved under home/guest/.local/share/keyrings/. The next time you reboot the system and open Opera it'll ask for the password you created before, then you insert it and it opens without any flaws and won't ask you for this password no matter how many times you close and open Opera. The problem is when you reboot: it asks again for the password you created. So the question is: in which folder is this typed password saved?
