Hi Bas,

 From the Studio v6.1 Whatsnew61.pdf:

    sleep() Function
    A sleep() function has been added to allow you to suspend method 
execution for a specified
    length of time. The function sleep(milliseconds) suspends execution 
for the specified
    number of milliseconds, and returns true if execution was suspended 
successfully or false if
    an error occurred. Note this function is not available in 
client-executed methods.

I wonder what sort of error could cause it to return false, and what you 
could do about it if you trapped it?
