Does anyone know why core A4 sleeps 10 seconds after a WU is complete?

Probably nobody outside of Development .... except that that person may have moved on.

It is a way to make sure that files that have been opened for shared access with another process have, in fact, been closed before attempting to continue processing them.

I don't recall where I read this, but some years ago I came across an explanation that the sleep period was to make certain all SMP computational threads have finished and synchronized their results and then exited. Then the core can wrap up the results and make them ready for sending back.
