[fpc-pascal] Use sleep in thread

I presume most of the systems would make the sleeping thread to yield the
execution time for other threads.
The questionable behavior might occur in case of  sleep(0); (should it
yield the remaining time or just return immediately - up to the OS).
And multi-cpu might also do something different.
