TIMEOUT

Delay execution of a batch file.

Syntax
TIMEOUT delay

Key
delay :Delay in seconds (between -1 and 100000) to wait before continuing.
The value -1 causes the computer to wait indefinitely for a keystroke
(like the PAUSE command)Timeout will pause command execution for a number of seconds, after which it continues without requiring a user keystroke. If the user does press a key at any point, execution will resume immediately.
Timeout.exe seems to consume less processor time time than Sleep.exe
