Read Prior Article Read Next Article
Summary Delay monitors events and interrupts, which results in CPU utilization.

Calling Delay() does not put your thread to sleep; events and interrupts continue to be monitored in your thread.

If you don't want to monitor events, you can use Sleep(), which does not use as much CPU.
