I want to dispose an applet after cerain period of time lets say after 3 min. My applet is nothing but a soft phone dialer if no one dial any number from soft dialer within 3 min i want to dispose that soft dialer applet and create another soft phone with the number already stored in the database.

Thanks in advance.

Sleep main thread for 3 minutes after initialization.

If some events happends, wake thread and do job, and then put thread to sleep again.

I something is not happened during 3 minutes, thread just clean applet.
