Back in Pentium 66 days Intel shipped a bunch of mother boards that made it impossible to disable power management.
We were shipping a 386 mode extended DOS batch application (long story). To keep the machines from powering down during a run we suggested a workaround. A thermal water cup pecking bird with a paper clip attached to hit the shift key on every peck.
I sent a copy of the 'tech bulletin' to a friend who worked at Intel, thinking they should make it an official workaround. They never did.
Because you made it all up? Anyone who has actually played with the drinking bird knows that they can't generate anywhere near as much force as the keyboards of that era required in order to register a keystroke.
