import 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."
