Suggest you look at the hoverintent plugin

Saves messing around with timeouts

No points for this comment, please, but I'd just like to vote up the use of something like this with a little delay.  It has to be one of the smarter UX designs I've seen in a long time.  It's amazingly annoying when you have to move the mouse over a piece of the navigation and all the flyouts jump all over the screen.  With hoverIntent, it looks like you can give the client a break from all that.  Great suggestion!

With your own timer : http://jsfiddle.net/XmsBc/

var _in = function() {
    var dis = this;
    var t = setTimeout(function() {
                $(dis).removeData("timer");
                $(dis).addClass("active")
    }, 3000);
    $(this).data("timer",t);
}

var _ot = function() {
    if($(this).data("timer")) {
        clearInterval($(this).data("timer"));
        $(this).removeData("timer");
    }
    $(this).removeClass("active")
}

$("td").hover(_in,_ot);

Open in new window
