Hi, I remember I used to know a command that would allow me to pause a batch file for a duration.  I used it to wait for a tape to dismount.  I know it was on a 2000 Server, and it probbially had the support tools installed. I can't for the life of me remember it, or find it.

Question: what the heck is this command.  It was something like wait, or time out.

Thanks a ton
