delayed startups are best done with caps..

the 555 timer can be used as a LD driver DC pulse source.

Good for making a pulsed laser driver.

Sorry I just had to share that... anyhoo, what is it you are trying to do M? Post the circuit, 555s are great chips I have used dozens of them for different devices.
