Sleep Syntax

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

sleep time

Where:
time
is the number of seconds to pause.
For example:

Add a line in a batch file to pause the batch for an hour before running the next command in a batch file.
sleep 3600
Wait 10 seconds before running next command:
sleep 10
