The Sleep function suspends the execution of the current thread for a specified interval.
// sleep time in milliseconds
This function does not return a value.
A thread can relinquish the remainder of its time slice by calling this function with a sleep time of zero milliseconds.
You have to be careful when using Sleep and code that directly or indirectly creates windows. If a thread creates any windows, it must process messages. Message broadcasts are sent to all windows in the system. If you have a thread that uses Sleep with infinite delay, the system will deadlock. Two examples of code that indirectly creates windows are DDE and COM CoInitialize. Therefore, if you have a thread that creates windows, use MsgWaitForMultipleObjects or MsgWaitForMultipleObjectsEx, rather than Sleep.
MsgWaitForMultipleObjects, MsgWaitForMultipleObjectsEx, SleepEx
