Sleep() indeed puts the running (main) thread to sleep and allows for 
other threads to run in the mean time.

The problem with sleep is not that it would not work as expected, but 
that it increases the latency. It your Thread fires main thread events 
(that later are called by "CheckSynchronize()"), with sleep they are not 
executed immediately (as one would desire) but only with a latency of 
(up to) the  sleeping time.
