    • will make the system wait xxx milliseconds.

    • can be used to delay script execution.

    • is often used to relax the system in between resource intensive tasks.

    • works on every platform x86 + x64 Windows / Linux / OSX

    • Existing sleep() solutions use a blocking while loop which uses 100% CPU. This is incredibly stupid.

    • Also, many sleep() solutions are only for Windows or only for Linux.

    Install using NPM

    npm install system-sleep

    Use

    var sleep = require('system-sleep');
    sleep(5000); // 5 seconds

    Test

    Prints variable y to the console every 1 second during 10 seconds.

    var sleep = require('system-sleep');
    for (= 0; y < 10; y++) {
        console.log(y);
        sleep(1000);
    }
