    Use setTimeout() method. Try this

    PHP Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    <
    html>
    <
    head>
    <
    script>
    time=3000;//time to stay on, in milliseconds
    function closeMes(){
    document.getElementById('mes').style.display='none'
    }
    window.onload=function(){setTimeout('closeMes()',time)}
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="mes" style="position:absolute; background-color:#CCCCCC">This message will stay on for 3 seconds</div>
    </body>
    </html>
