Sorry for my weak english, by preemption I mean forced context

(process) switch applied to my process.


My question is:


If I wrote and run my own program game in such way that  it is  20 millisecond period work, then 5 millisecond sleep, and then windows pump (peek message/dispatch message) in loop again and again - Is it ever preempted by force in windows or no, this preemption doeas not occur ?


I suppose that this preemption would occur if i would not volountairy give control back to system by sleep or peek/dispatch in by larger amount of time - but here it will occur or no?


tnx for the answer
