In a Lazarus GUI program you can use a timer to handle this.
Just set it to say 1s delay and thenb enable it in Form.OnCreate:
TfrmMain = class(TForm)
procedure TfrmMain.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
Timer1.Interval := 500; //Default is 1000 ms
Timer1.Enabled := true;
procedure TfrmMain.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
//Put your code here
Application.Terminate; //The application will disappear from view...
