I'd like to make my app sleep until it recieves a timer message. How should I code it to ensure hardly any processor time is taken up when my app is sleeping.

Well, if you want to wait for a timer message, the API of choice will be 'MsgWaitForForMultipleObjects()' or 'MsgWaitForForMultipleObjectsEx()'
