We created an activity for SP Designer, where it check if item is check-out then pause for 5 minutes and check it again, untill it's checked-in.
It was working fine on Production for around a month, but suddenly it stopped working after we increased the RAM on server and rebooted it.
The same solution is working in Test and VPC environment.
We have :
Win Server 2003 SP2
MOSS 2007 SP2
.Net framework 3.5
SQL Server 2005 SP2
I have found hundreds of blog for this problem but none of it have answer. As this is on production we need some guaranteed solution, as we cannot test different solution on it.

Thanks for reply. We did that already, but it didn't solved the problem. Also only this custom activity was not working, other pause for and pause untill were working.
But now it resolved. we changed the delay activity to delayFor Activity in the custom activity.
we still don't know why it stopped working delay activity, but as of now we are good with pauseFor.

Sometimes the timer service crashes and if it does, any workflows scheduled to resume will not "wake up".. this means the workflow will never come back and resume.
