boolean When set to true, the sleep application will consume DTMFs which will, for example, prevent a caller from exiting out of an IVR. The default behavior is not to eat DTMF digits. This variable was added in SVN rev 14102.

(warning) this is a change in default behavior as the sleep application previously ate DTMFs without exception. Be sure to set sleep_eat_digits to true in order to preserve the previous behavior.
