Welcome to AutoIt and the forum,
Can you please explain why you want your script to wait for 5 minutes? If you use Sleep how would you exit the script while it is waiting for 5 minutes?

Local $time = TimerInit()

While TimerDiff($time) < 1000 * 60 * 5 ; 1 second x 60 = 1 minute, x 5 = 5 minutes
    Sleep(200)
WEnd

No peeking unless you want to spoil the fun ;) That's at least how I'd do it if I wanted to terminate the program when it's pausing.

 

PS. Welcome to this awesome community ^^

I think water's post contains the point the OP should think through. WHY is the 5 minute wait necessary? Is it an arbitrary amount of time, or is he waiting for some sort of trigger (then conclusion of an application install, the appearance of a window, etc. etc) that usually takes about 5 minutes? Much better to code for the event than simply locking yourself into a long sleep. 

@OP the more information you can provide us, the more assistance we can provide you ;)
