API Question - i.e. Sleep

OS=Win98 2nd Ed --- VB5 Pro
I needed some delays in my App so I pulled down API Viewer and went for Sleep.  I find Sleep with one parameter..milliseconds...I find SleepEx with two parameters..milliseconds and Alertable.

1.  What are the API's with Ex appended.

2.  How can I find out what "alertable" is, what it provides, and how to use.

Although I specified the Sleep API, I mean the question "as applies to all API's"

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
