caps-mode may be useful.  I don't use the Capslock key, because it's
mapped to Control.   When I have to type uppercased text, either I
type it in lowercase and then use upcase-region  (C-x C-u), or I use

(defun caps-mode-self-insert-command (&optional n)
  "Like `self-insert-command', but uppercase the the typed character."
  (interactive "p")
  (insert-char (upcase last-command-char) n))

(defvar caps-mode-map nil)

(when (fboundp 'define-minor-mode)
  (define-minor-mode caps-mode
      "Toggle caps mode.
With no argument, this command toggles the mode.
Non-null prefix argument turns on the mode.
Null prefix argument turns off the mode.

When caps mode is enabled, all letters are inserted in their
capitalized form."
    :init-value nil
    :lighter " Caps"
    (setq caps-mode-map
          (let ((map (make-sparse-keymap)))
            (substitute-key-definition 'self-insert-command
                                       map global-map)
    (if caps-mode
        (add-to-list 'minor-mode-map-alist (cons 'caps-mode caps-mode-map))
        (setq minor-mode-map-alist
              (delete (assoc 'caps-mode minor-mode-map-alist)
