"when" isn't a keyword; it's a function defined in Control.Monad.
 (Haskell's laziness means that many things that would have to be baked-in
syntax in other languages can be written as functions, and its syntax means
those functions behave as if they *were* baked into the language.)  So all
you should need to do is add

    import Control.Monad (when)

up with the other import statements.
