What "idle - Minutes(0xA)" & "Idle - Hours(0xA)" do ?
"Idle - Hours(0xA)" wait until 10am or while 10 hours ?

It's basically just a pause for that number of sim minutes or hours. Usually used in the Main BHAV of an object. For example if you want something to happen once an hour, you'd say "Idle - Hours (0x01)" and then loop back to do it again. You would not typically put this in an interaction that a Sim would be performing on an object, because usually you want them animated while they wait, and interruptible.

Thank you !
I use it in the Main function in order to detect the current day state (Morning 6-7am, day 7am-6pm, evening 6-7pm, night 7pm-6am) in my version of the chris997's "Weather atmosphere" (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=187229) mod !
