Cant 'Sleep' using this facility in VB.net 2005 brings errors

Hi I have this simple code

 Private Sub Button44_Click_1(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button44.Click

        Sleep(5000)

        MsgBox("Hi")

    End Sub

the program waits and then at the end of the time throws up and error

A call to PInvoke function 'Form Elements BetAuto!Form_Elements_BetAuto.Module1::Sleep' has unbalanced the stack. This is likely because the managed PInvoke signature does not match the unmanaged target signature. Check that the calling convention and parameters of the PInvoke signature match the target unmanaged signature.

what am I doing wrong here ?

I would do as

System.Threading.Thead.Sleep(5000)
System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("Hi")
