    Default Pausing an operation without freezing the entire client

    This is the code I have
    checkUser = false;
    loginMessage2 = "Error connecting to server.";
    		try {
    			Thread.sleep(5000);
    		} catch (InterruptedException e) {
    			e.printStackTrace();
    		}
    		checkUser = true;

    What I want to do is add a delay between boolean changes, without the whole client freezing up

    Any help would be appreciated

    Use a helper thread to do what you've shown above while the client continues to run on another thread.
