Yes, I think what you're saying is my 2nd option, but remember, the callbacks all lock until the script calls the sleep/handle function. Also, in the sleep.handle function, you do need to signal the callbacks to wake up.
If you don't want the user to specifically have to call the sleep/handle function, you could call it from a debug hook.
