As far as I know GLUT doesn't have any way of enabling vsync. Maybe you should consider using a modern

library like GLFW or SDL. In GLFW you would call:

glfwSwapInterval(1);

It needs to be said that you should beware of any recommendations in these results to use Sleep calls.

Sleep calls are appropriate if you want to reduce CPU load.

Sleep calls are not appropriate for controlling framerate.

And these two are not the same thing.

Although you should be using VSYNC, you can do some waiting in-between frames if the game is essentially idle:

It is a little bit shameful how it is now on Windows...
