Of course you can always skip to the conclusion.
What should the requirements of the sleep method be? I think power basic described it the most clearly as:
Pause the current thread of the application for a specified number of milliseconds (mSec), allowing other processes (or threads) to continue.
Power Basic sleep() - Win32 Sleep() - Java Thread.sleep()
The most basic way would be something like this:
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0" width="50" height="50" id="flashSleep" align="middle"> <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" /> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="false" /> <param name="movie" value="flashSleep.swf" /> <param name="quality" value="high" /> <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /> <embed src="flashSleep.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="50" height="50" name="flashSleep" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" /> </object>
Another way is to use server communication with XMLHttp.
Note: Any type of server software could be used in the place of Apache and PHP. IIS and ASP for example.
