  1. I'm no C++ expert, but isn't the Sleep procedure based on the system clock? Won't that mean different times for different systems? :)
  2. Can't remember exactly about the sleep procedure, but most programming languages take time in ms as parameter, so 5000 would be about 5 seconds (yes can vary a bit).

    Can you describe in your own words how you want the soft to behave? And if you can indent the code it would also help.
  3. Dude u can use delay function to do this
    here's the following code for this instead of sleep:
    //header file is <process.h> for exit(0) to close program

    delay(5000);
    exit(0);
  4. Dude, u are almost 3 years late : )
