What to do with acceptance?

The answer may be an url or document and I have to study it first as it is going over my head.

Can I leave it alone for an unkown period and accept an answer when I understand?

EDIT: Without putting a bounty on it, a questions stays unanswered for an infinity length of time.

I would simply leave a comment thanking the answerer and letting him/her know that you are going to report back once you've taken a look at the resource.
