how can I put the CPU in sleep mode?
Hi all
I want to put CPU in sleep mode that is I want to execute only Idle process on CPU for continuous 5 Sec. So I think that if i use msleep (5000) in kernel version 2.6 then I can achieve my aim. ( I dont know if I am wrong). But as in kernel 2.4 we dont have msleep () function, how can we make CPU to execute Idle task for 5 secs.?

Do we have some way of scheduling IDLE task for some secs??
Please help me in this regard. its very very urgent for me.
Thanks in advance.

Just use the sleep command in your script

man sleep

@J.W. Thanks for the reply.
You are right. But I need to do that in my module and not in script.
Can you please tell me in that case.
Thanks in advance.
