You can make a ThreadRun go to sleep for a period of time by using a SLEEP Node. This Node type has no output, and simply holds a ThreadRun in place until the time expires.

You may specify the time by using a VariableAssignment that resolves to one of the three things:

  • sleepSeconds: An INT Value determining how many seconds to sleep for.
  • isoDate: A STR value representing a timestamp in ISO format.
  • timestamp: A INT value representing the number of milliseconds since the epoch.
    • (Don't worry, in LittleHorse the INT is a 64-bit number.)

Note that when a ThreadRun reaches a SLEEP Node, the status of the ThreadRun remains RUNNING. Additionally, the ThreadRun is immediately interruptible (unless, of course, it has a non-interruptible Child Thread).
