Title : sleep
Usage : $self->sleep
Function: sleep for a number of seconds indicated by the delay policy
Returns : none
Args : none
NOTE: This method keeps track of the last time it was called and only
imposes a sleep if it was called more recently than the delay_policy()
It issues a warning every time it actually sleeps. I find it
inappropriate that a method warns me that it did what I asked it to do.
