How to get reduce of the find bug error saying. Manual thread scheduling with Thread.sleep() or Thread.yield() has no guaranteed semantics and is often used to mask race conditions.

I just use it for sleep the current thread for a while and its not used with in a condition statement. But its used inside a junit test case which has a assert statement at the end.
