why wouldn't it be 5 minutes :)

long a = System.currentTimeInMillis();
Thread.sleep(5*60*1000);
long b = System.currentTimeInMillis();

long a = System.currentTimeInMillis();
Thread.sleep(5*60*1000);
long b = System.currentTimeInMillis();

b - a = the elapsed milliseconds.  You can calculate from there.
