Why would you want a scripting language to sleep, there is no such thing as a loop in a web page (yes, I know it would be possible, but it would lock up a users machine).
I know you can set up the apache daemon to run on-demand to conserver resources, but I think you are getting mixed up between compiled and interpreted (aka scripting) languages.
