    Hmmm... Try using the code suggested by quicktom here: https://answers.unity.com/questions/164795/unable-to-trace-capslock-on-and-off.html

    He wrote:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
    2. [DllImport("user32.dll")]
    3. public static extern short GetKeyState(int keyCode);
    4. bool isCapsLockOn = false;
    5. void Start()
    6. {
    7.      isCapsLockOn = (((ushort)GetKeyState(0x14)) & 0xffff) != 0;//init stat
    8. }
    9. void Update()
    10. {
    11.      if(Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode.CapsLock))
    12.      {
    13.          isCapsLockOn  = !isCapsLockOn ;
    14.          //......
    15.      }
    16. }
    Personally, that code is out of my area of knowledge so I can't guarantee anything there.
    If that doesn't work, post the code that you used.
    I hope this fixes the problem!
