I'm writing some scripts with python, and I found sometimes, when I try to use 
time.sleep(1) to sleep 1 sec, it would actually sleep for 9 secs or even longer.

>From python document, I saw this:

Also, the suspension time may be longer than requested by an arbitrary amount 
because of the scheduling of other activity in the system. 

So, my question: under what kind of condition, time.sleep would suspend longer 
time than expected?

Anybody got interested?

Best Regards.
