Looping in background

Hi there,

Tried searching for this on the forum but couldn't find anything. I have a program which simply loads a dialog box at particular times of the day, depending on the user's settings. The program uses a while loop to check the time of day, but unfortunately this results in it slowing down the entire system as it uses up 100% CPU time. Even if I set it as low priority in task manager, although it doesn't slow down the system it still shows as taking up 100% CPU time which I'd rather not have. Is there any way to make the program loop in the background, or alternatively is there a way to check the system time repeatedly without using a loop?

Kind regards,
