do forever
        poll sensors
        update rrd
        wait 10-(now()-t) seconds

You could just do wait 10 seconds, but it depends on how long it takes to poll 
and update rrd.  
Like I said earlier, I use a daemon (written in C) for this - I'm sure you can do that on
Windows too.  (I'm on Linux).
