What is the best approach to this?
Is it even possible?
I'm trying to find the sleep() implementation but now realizing it might not even be relevant if it's not a thread.
Are there any other java methods that pause action for a specified period of time?

All code runs in a thread, so you can always call sleep() to wait for a while. Just be aware that if that's the only thread in the application then nothing will happen while it sleeps.

sleep will sleep a thread... regardless of whether other threads exist or not. Make sure you catch the exception
