The argument to the sleep method, you have shown is in milliseconds.
1000 milliseconds = 1 seconds
60 seconds = 1 minute

I think you get the formula now

There's an easier way, just use the TimeUnit enumeration from java.util.concurrent.

To make a thread sleep for 1 minute, you do something like this:

TimeUnit.MINUTES.sleep(1);

To make it sleep for 30 seconds:

TimeUnit.SECONDS.sleep(30);

And so on.

Yes, that's an excellent solution, but note that there's no MINUTE member. There's SECOND, MICROSECOND, NANOSECOND, and such, but no MINUTE.

Actually, there is, if we're talking about Java 6.

It even has DAYS!

I guess I am an old-timer too... but isn't 3600000 = one hour?

I think this is you want to know.
1 s = 1000 ms
1 m = 60 s
1 h = 60 m
