In module time :

     Suspend execution for the given number of seconds.
     The argument may be a floating point number to indicate a more 
precise sleep time. The actual suspension time may be less than that 
requested because any caught signal will terminate the sleep() following 
execution of that signal's catching routine. Also, the suspension time 
may be longer than requested by an arbitrary amount because of the 
scheduling of other activity in the system.
