Hello ,
I would like to know how could leave paused or leave matlab asleep for a while. For example , every 30 seconds go by checking a process or query a database by while, for, pause ... but do not know how could run , I want this leisurely time to time without doing anything to from time to time perform a check. Thanks in advanced!

I don't get it. Do you want to run a Matlab script and display some output every 30s? In that case use a timer. Do you want to have a Matlab process running and have some other process check on it every 30s? In that case use some sort of interprocess communication. Could be as simple as saving/reading a file.

You could use a timer() object for that.
