I don't understand your question - both threads call WaitForSingleObject, so
both threads pause.
Your producer appears to try and sleep twice - once by virtue of calling
self.shutdown_requested() (where is pauses consumer_pause seconds, and once
via a direct call to sleep for producer_seconds. I doubt that is what you
I suggest you ignore the service part of this. I'm confident that if you
constructed the same basic code as a regular Python script, it would do the
same thing, and also make it clearer to you what the real issues are.
