What command do I use to request a measurement every X minutes?

I apologize, this is very basic, but I can’t seem to find a tutorial on the web.

If I want a Digi XBee3 to report the temperature of the chip every x seconds/minutes/hours, what command would I use for the timing? If I put it to sleep on a cycle, will it know to run the code when it wakes up? I’m starting with the basic AT command example:

import xbee

print(" ±------------------------------------+“)
print(” | XBee MicroPython AT Commands Sample |“)
print(” ±------------------------------------+

Read the module’s temperature.

temperature = xbee.atcmd(“TP”)

convert unsigned 16-bit value to signed temperature

if temperature > 0x7FFF:
temperature = temperature - 0x10000
print(“The XBee is %.1F C (%.1F F)” % (temperature, temperature * 9.0 / 5.0 + 32.0))

Thank you for your help!

you would use the XBee sleep function
