I just installed Fortran 2020 -- told me to look at the logs, I got a real chuckle from the 5th line

These log lines are from Window installer. To give credit where credit is due - this is Microsoft humor.

if Microsoft had a sense of humour we would still have Clippy and the famous quote "Never run with scissors"

Then again Intel Fortran is humourless I suppose

Just for grins, my favorite Microsoft humor (from a few years ago) was a boot-up error message "Keyboard not detected - press any key to continue..."

But I don't think it was intentional humor.

We can think of a wireless keyboard that is provided with an autonomous sleep function in its firmware for conserving its battery usage. A keypress could wake up the keyboard, which can then be sensed by the PC/Laptop. I have never had a wireless keyboard, so I cannot tell from experience whether this scenario actually occurs.

My daughter has a wireless keyboard - well a Logitech one -- it does not wake the computer. 

Interesting if you have wake on lan - then you can wake your computer -- but it does not work on wifi so you cannot do it over a cell modem -- which is a real pain for deployed devices. 

I did a search on Intel Humour and Steve turned up for his Fortran is not dead poster -- I still have my mug.

Wake on Wireless LAN is possible if the device and driver both support that feature, see https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/documentation/wowlan , http://revolutionwifi.blogspot.com/2010/11/wake-on-wireless-lan.html , and https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/hardware/wireless/wake-on-wireless-lan .

I have tried for a while to actually get it to work and we use very expensive modems - but there are signficant problems
