Post Sleep vs. Wait
What is the difference between “wait” and “sleep”? I’m curious as to the technical and application differences between the two. Or are they exactly the same...???...???

Hi Sean,
Sleep(mSec) is a synonym for wait1Msec(mSec), so the parameter is in milliseconds. wait(seconds) is a Natural Language command; the parameter is in seconds. wait is actually implemented using wait1Msec and wait10Msec - you can see this by typing wait into your program, then right click on it and select "Go to definition/declaration."
