Sauron is not showing is ugly little head

I had to get the ring from him in Angband 99, went to Mount Doom, he was not there - so I destroyed the ring and headed back to Angband.

I have been up and down angband 99-113 several times, and he is just not there.

1. Do I have to wait the X turns before leaving a level, to avoid the "normal level" feeling?
2. Do I have to keep going deeper, or is going back and forth between 99 and 100 fine?
3. What is his likelihood to show up?

Isnt it lvl 99 only ? At least I used to always reload that level till he showed up.

As for resting to get better level, I am not sure either. If there arent any special rules regarding Sauron, it should be more likely to get him after resting (since he is a high level unique and adds to value), but whether that is enough to justify the time wasted resting, who knows.

He can take his sweet time to show up; my method was to go up/down the (connected) stairs between 99 and 100 till he showed up in ESP (look at the visible monster list).

Sauron will eventually show up at any level 99 or greater in Angband. It can take a while- I guess 20 levels is not unusual. I turn off my brain and stair-scum.
If he doesn't show up you need to make absolutely sure he isn't on the Mt Doom level.
