The members of this class are used to specify infinite time-out intervals in threading operations. Infinite is used by methods that accept an integer millisecondsTimeout parameter, such as Thread.Sleep(Int32), Thread.Join(Int32), and ReaderWriterLock.AcquireReaderLock(Int32). InfiniteTimeSpan is used by methods that accept a timeout parameter of type TimeSpan, such as Thread.Sleep(TimeSpan), Thread.Join(TimeSpan), and ReaderWriterLock.AcquireReaderLock(TimeSpan).

The following example shows a thread going to sleep for an infinite time and subsequently being woken up.
