If counter > 70 Then
<CODE TO TRIGGER DOING NOTHING FOR 10 MINUTES>
counter = 0
End If
       

This code above is inside  a nested loop.

When counter is more than 70, I need to pause the program (without loading my CPU) and just do nothing for 10 minutes.  No further code is executed.  I have a timer in my program but I dont know the code to put here.
