    Thanks for the reply. I think it was actually a basic error I made when I first used it 12 years ago. I very rarely use sleep anyway (as there are very few reasons to do so!), but I was just intrigued as to whether that was ever the case (as someone just told me he wanted to add a "sleep" into one of his scripts that would be run from a web-browser, to which I replied that it wouldn't work - only to be proved wrong <G>)
