My problem is related to the behaviour of sleep function. If, during the execution of sleep function, I change the system clock of my PC, sleep function will not recover from sleeping when it should. Example: My controller: def index logger.info "Start sleeping at:"+Time.now.to_s sleep 5 logger.info "Sleeping finished at:"+Time.now.to_s end Everythink works well if I don't change the system time during the execution of sleep function. However, if during the execution of sleep function I shift the system time, let's say 1 minute back, I'll need to wait 1 minute and 5 seconds until the sleep function finishes. I'd need to force sleep function to sleep always 5 seconds, even if the system time changes during the call of the sleep function. If I try somethink similar in pure ruby (no rails), everythink works as expected, I can change system time without any consequences to the behaviour of sleep function. I am using Rails 1.2.1 under WinXP. Thanks for your help.

You shouldnt be manually changing the system clock very often.

The server application will be running on customer's PC and the sleep function is used in a background thread. In these conditions, the manual change of system clock may happen and I would'nt like if this freezed the background thread.
