The 60sec one is to allow you to get to your treatment area (chair/bed) before any frequencies are transmitted. The short ones are to allow an audio alert to sound when a program or group of programs changes to the next one. This can be set up in Settings, and it allows you to use a preset during the day and break it up into manageable sections. Details are given in the Guide.
There are no pauses in the Remote presets - only for Contact and Plasma.
