Suppose one has a GUI app that does the occassional network I/O--and that's about it. Right now it wakes up 5 times a second to poll. What's the best way to keep it sleeping? Seems to me the I/O should be moved to a separate thread and done pretty much synchronously. Then it can reliably be put to sleep.

Agh, this will take time.
