Delay MM_showMenu during onmouseover?

Anybody know any way to delay the menu dropdowns during onmouseover a bit so that when you pass over the menu but don't stop on it, it doesn't open? I want it to only open when the mouse cursor is on it for more than say half a second. Problem is users are zipping around the screen with the mouse and whenever it passes over it even very rapidly the menu opens...annoying. I tried a javascript pause, and that works however it still opens after the pause, and the mouse is nowhere near it then. I need it to only open if the mouse stops and hovers on it.
