    All you have to do to get this one is play the game till you get to the room where you and Wally hanging above a pool of Hot Acid, and wait till the candle burns though the rope. Easy

    Very easy One, just do nothing after LeChuck captured you and Wally at the end of act 3: The Fortress and you will "die".

    This may seem like the longest five minutes of your life. It is possible - as it happened to me, twice - that the rope does not burn after almost 10 minutes of waiting and the achievement does not pop.

    At the 5 minute mark after not touching the controller, the pause screen will come up automatically. If the rope has not burned by this point, or if you're just counting the minutes, reload a save and let the scene replay.

    Mental Knight 5Well you don't have to "do nothing" for five minutes (not touch the controller, let the game idle). You just have to go five minutes without solving the puzzle. Feel free to go through your inventory, interact with the environment, etc.

    AutomaticOcelotCorrect you don't have to be idle, but it really is the most normal thing to do. I updated the description to be more clear that the achievement may not pop regardless.
