    There's no such timing function in iMacros.

    What you need to do is copy-paste your code x times below each other, x is the amount of the required action you can run in an hour (i guess you need to figure this one out yourself), at the very end of the code set the wait seconds to 300 for 5 minutes pause:
    WAIT SECONDS=300
    Play the macro in loop, so it starts again in every hour.
    If you want a more random pause and not exactly 5 mins every time, check the wiki of the EVAL command.

    Or you can write it in javascript to do this. It's pretty easy if you know how to code.

    Can you be a bit more specific on what you're trying to achieve? It's hard to help without enough information.

    As pointed out above, you could use
    Wait Seconds = X

    There's also PAUSE, which pauses the script until the user clicks start again. But without knowing what you're trying to do - or why, i have no idea what would be useful.
