How do I delay threads using pthread?  (posix standard)

I'm wondering how I can delay a thread for a certain amount of time by not using the pthread_delay_np(&ts) command, since it doesnt forfill posix standard. Can I do something with pthread_cond_timedwait() and a semaphore or mutex that wont be used for another thing than just this purpose?
or is there another way? does sleep() suspends the hole process or just a thread, can it be used or is there some other command that only suspends the thread?

I had faced the same problem, and sleep will only make your thread sleep not the whole process
Initially I was planning to use alarms. You can find the discussion here
