Android close dialog after 5 seconds?

I'm working on an accesibility app. When the user wants to leave the app I show a dialog where he has to confirm he wants to leave, if he doesn't confirm after 5 seconds the dialog should close automatically (since the user probably opened it accidentally). This is similar to what happens on Windows when you change the screen resolution (an alert appears and if you don't confirm it, it reverts to the previous configuration).

This is how I show the dialog:

AlertDialog.Builder dialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(this).setTitle("Leaving launcher").setMessage("Are you sure you want to leave the launcher?");
dialog.setPositiveButton("Confirm", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
@Override
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int whichButton) {
exitLauncher();
}
});
dialog.create().show();


How can I close the dialog 5 seconds after showing it?

Answer
final AlertDialog.Builder dialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(this).setTitle("Leaving launcher").setMessage("Are you sure you want to leave the launcher?");
dialog.setPositiveButton("Confirm", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
    @Override
    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int whichButton) {
        exitLauncher();
    }
});     
final AlertDialog alert = dialog.create();
alert.show();

// Hide after some seconds
final Handler handler  = new Handler();
final Runnable runnable = new Runnable() {
    @Override
    public void run() {
        if (alert.isShowing()) {
            alert.dismiss();
        }
    }
};

alert.setOnDismissListener(new DialogInterface.OnDismissListener() {
    @Override
    public void onDismiss(DialogInterface dialog) {
        handler.removeCallbacks(runnable);
    }
});

handler.postDelayed(runnable, 10000);
