Example of spam username:

Please how can i deny registration with username with caps lock on forum registration.

First word can have Caps lock other word should be lower case.

Your assistance will be appreciated.

If am able to disable Caps lock on username the registration will be denied.

Since the spam bot uses usernames such as nManaClass or MspamCme.

What you want to do is actively detect the shift-key. If the shift-key is detected then it is a real live person. A bot (spammer) will never be pressing a shift-key. Is this what you are trying to do?
