I just want to write a small daemon that has to look every X seconds, if a 
special situtation exists and then had to react.

Now I just could make a repeat until-loop, but I guess that would cost to 
much CPU-time?

What is the right method to tell a programm to sleep for X seconds?

(and how to fork?)
