Delay execution for a few seconds or minutes, for use within a batch file.

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.

A timeout of 1 second will wait until the 'next second' so in practice may be as short as 1/10th of a second.

A more accurate delay can be produced by the PING command with a loopback address (, there is a delay of 1 second between each consecutive ping, so 3 pings will produce a delay of 2 seconds, 11 pings will produce a delay of 10 seconds and so on.

In tests PING consumes less processor time than Sleep.exe or Timeout.exe, this allows other processes to run in the background. The PING command can only be interrupted with Ctrl-C. Source: Clay Calvert (usenet 2001.)


Set a delay for 40 seconds:
PING -n 41>nul

Starting April, 2018 twitch users who receive 25 timeouts in a channel will be permanently timed out from typing in that channel’s chat and receive the following message:

“You have been permanently timed out from this channel. Refer to the Twitch terms of service for additional information.”

Broadcasters and channel moderators appointed by the broadcaster are equipped with a set of commands and features that will allow them to closely monitor and moderate the chat. These features and commands range from giving a user a quick timeout to built in anti-spam.

To use any command or chat feature simply type the required command into the text-box and hit enter.
Please note that words surrounded by the “less than” (<) and “greater than” (>) symbols indicate a required value, for example: <username> would require a username (i.e. “Justin”).
A word surrounded by square brackets ([ and ]) indicate an optional value, for example: [seconds] could optionally be left out, or replaced by a number of seconds (i.e. 10).
The symbols themselves ([, ], <, and >) are not to be included into the text box when entering your command.

Fun Nightbot Commands

This command allows you to temporarily ban someone from the chat room for 10 minutes by default. This will be indicated to yourself and the temporarily banned subject in chat on a successful temporary ban. A new timeout command will overwrite an old one.
The command also supports banning for a specific set of time via the optional [seconds] value.
To clear a timeout, either use the Unban command or overwrite the current timeout with a new, 1-second one.
Usage: /timeout <username> [seconds], or clicking the clock symbol either directly in chat or on the user badge which appears when clicking on a username.

This command will allow you to permanently ban a user from the chat room.
Usage: /ban <username>, or by clicking the Cancel symbol either directly in chat or on the user badge which appears when clicking on a username.

Time Out Twitch

This command will allow you to lift a permanent ban on a user from the chat room. You can also use this command to end a ban early; this also applies to timeouts.
Usage: /unban <username>, or by clicking the Unban button which replaces the Ban button.

This command allows you to set a limit on how often users in the chat room are allowed to send messages (rate limiting).
Usage: /slow <seconds>
Note: Twitch Partners with a Subscription Button can allow their Subscribers to bypass the slow mode filter if they so wish to do so by going to their dashboard and navigating to their subscriptions tab.
