Best Way to Handle Wait Times within a Triggered Event
Currently I have a couple of events, that when triggered, turn on things. I am currently setting a Pause() for 4 minutes, then turning them off. I have read where I could use the System:WaitTimer() or Timers driver, but from what I can tell, I would need to then have two events, one to turn on, and then one to turn off after a period of time. I have just been including the Pause() within one triggered event.

Is there any harm to having an event running for 4+ minutes, or would it be best to set it up so the event runs then stops, and then runs and stops again as it would with the countdown method?
