Your wallet will indicate it is staking by displaying a green colored leaf icon in the bottom right corner of the wallet interface. If that leaf icon is gray in colour, it indicates that staking is not active.
Note that when you start the wallet, it will need to fully synchronize before staking becomes active.

Close and reopen your wallet to reflect the changes. Your wallet will need to fully sync in order to begin staking.
When will coins not stake?

- Coins that are locked in addresses reserved to masternode. This is indicated as a lock icon next to the address.
