Question on the use of time.sleep to reduce CPU usage: Let’s say I want the program to email me every 30 minutes. What’s the proper way to set up time.sleep() in this case?
- Do I need to set the argument within time.sleep() as a divisor of the every() argument? So lets say every 15 minutes (900 seconds) or exactly every 30 minutes (1800 seconds)?
- Or can I set the time.sleep to eg 29 minutes (1740 seconds).
- Or does setting time.sleep() at 29 minutes make the while True “miss” the scheduled email send?
Hopefully this questions makes sense…
