sleep - delay for a specified amount of time
Pause for NUMBER seconds. SUFFIX may be `s' for seconds (the default), `m' for
minutes, `h' for hours or `d' for days. Unlike most implementations that
require NUMBER be an integer, here NUMBER may be an arbitrary floating point
number. Given two or more arguments, pause for the amount of time specified by
the sum of their values.
