You won't believe this story! In the middle of the contest, while my computer was activating the transmitter and repeatedly calling CQ via the wav file, the wireless keyboard's batteries died. I realized this as I tried to stop the transmitter from being repeatedly keyed, calling endless CQs. Typing didn't stop the CQ, as it should have. The ESCAPE key didn't stop it either. After initial panic, I realized the batteries must have died and that I had no way to communicate with computer other than to power it down. I ran around the house and, fortunately, found a couple AAA batteries, all while I'm calling CQ. I inserted the batteries, hit the "connect" button on the bottom of the keyboard and breathed a sigh of relief as the CQs stopped. Never will I start a contest again without fresh batteries in the keyboard and mouse!
