Just a couple of quick questions that I hope will be quite easy to answer...!

1. If a parent thread is sleeping, will this have any impact on any child threads ? The child threads run independently of the parent thread.

2. If a parent thread spawns child threads, do the child threads die if the parent thread completes ?

No, in both cases.
