sleep - delay execution

include "sys.m";
sys:= load Sys Sys->PATH;
sleep: fn(period: int): int;


sleep (period)

The sleep function suspends the current thread for period milliseconds. The actual suspension time may be a little more or less than the requested time. If period is 0, the process gives up the CPU if another process is waiting to run, returning immediately if not.
