Short description
Waits for the processes to be stopped before accepting more input.

Wait-Process [-Name] <String[]> [[-Timeout] <Int32>] [<CommonParameters>]
Wait-Process [-Id] <Int32[]> [[-Timeout] <Int32>] [<CommonParameters>]
Wait-Process [[-Timeout] <Int32>] -InputObject <Process[]> [<CommonParameters>]

The Wait-Process cmdlet waits for one or more running processes to be stopped before accepting input.  In the Windows P
owerShell console, this cmdlet suppresses the command prompt until the processes are stopped. You can specify a process
 by process name or process ID (PID), or pipe a process object to Wait-Process.

Wait-Process works only on processes running on the local computer.
