You can use this to overcome "sleep" :

      // If there are messages in the queue, then do not wait at all, 
else, wait
      // as little as possible, so as to avoid 100% CPU usage and still 
      // as fast as we possibly can.
      MsgWaitForMultipleObjectsEx(0, pHandles, 1, QS_ALLINPUT, 

Obviously, one has to understand message processing in the first place...
