Process Wait State

I'm currently trying to learn Activi, with the intention of introducting it within a large scale software project.

At present, I have a series of ServiceTasks that model the various lifecycle states in a process. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any natural mechansim to halt workflow execution between ServiceTasks i.e a Wait State. I've got a copy of Activiti in Action and I've read the online documentation, but I still can't seem to find anything suitable. I've seen user tasks quoted as "wait states", but I am not waiting for a user to retrieve a task. I simply want to programmatically trigger an event as needed and progress to the next ServiceTask. Am I missing something or is there a better solution to what I'm trying to do?
