Quotes from http://lua-users.org/wiki/SleepFunction:
Solution: Busy Wait
local clock = os.clock
local t0 = clock()
while clock() - t0 <= n do end
Solution: sleep command
os.execute("sleep " .. tonumber(n))
socket.select(nil, nil, sec)

for the above reasons they don't work for me.
Is there a rock offering a simple C-programmed sleep?
