Where did you put the Sleep() exactly?  You can't call Sleep() while
TIdHTTP.Get() is still running.

Well, then the server is sending back HTML that redirects a web browser
automatically.  When you operate at the HTTP level directly, you will have
to parse that HTML manually to get the URL links, and then perform a new
request to download the document.

It can't.  You would just get another wait message.
