I'm using jquery and after 60 seconds I need the shadowbox to automatically close.  I'm using the following sleep function in coldfusion and would like to tie it in.  Any idea?
<cfsetting requesttimeout="60">
<cfset sleep(60000)>
 
..now close shadowbox..

Shadowbox.close(); is what I see everywhere to close it...

So that means this should work
setTimeout("Shadowbox.close()", 60000);

ok, but where do I place that code?  In the page that opens the shadowbox?  the following doesn't work..
<cfoutput>
<script type="text/javascript" src="[pathtoscripts]/shadowbox/shadowbox.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript">
    Shadowbox.init({
        skipSetup: true,
        players: ["iframe"]
    });
 
    window.onload = function(){
    
        // open a welcome message as soon as the window loads
        Shadowbox.open({
            content:    'https:\/\/page.cfm',
            player:     'iframe', 
            title:      "page",
            height:     575,
            width:      900
        });
			    
    };
</script>
  
<script type="text/javascript">
setTimeout("Shadowbox.close()", 60000);
</script>
</cfoutput>

Try setting the 60000 to 2000 and then wait and see if it closes. It should only take two seconds.
