I have a c++ program that runs in the background, and it has a continuouse loop in it. However it has a cpu usage of 99% I need to check the current time approximatly every 20 seconds. How can I pause the program for this 20 secconds and then loop once and pause again etc... I need the cpu to get no higher than 2-3% really.

Also what platform if windows, console or Win32? If you use Win32, you can actually create a timer that fires every 20 seconds, of which you can place your code to execute in there. If you have a console app, you could add in your own windows messaging loop and do the same as well.
