thread question

I have an application that starts a second thread, that receives 
messages via a socket-server and puts that messages into a queue. The 
main thread is polling that queue for new messages. My problem is that 
the main thread takes to much of the time polling the empty queue while 
the socket-server thread doesn't get enough time for receiving the 
messages. Is it possible to force the main threat to sleep for a certain
amount of time or give the socket-server thread a higher priority?
Thanks in advance.

Kind regards
