For $i = 1 To 120
    ;Send ("{SPACE}")
    Sleep(500)
Next

I need a way to get the following script to end after a certain period of time

Try this:

Opt("SendKeyDelay", 500) ;Set an option to send keys every half a second

Global $iLoopTime = 5000 ;5 seconds
Global $iTimer = TimerInit()

While 1
    Send("{SPACE}")
    
    If TimerDiff($iTimer) >= $iLoopTime Then ExitLoop
WEnd

;//This allows for exacltey 120 presses per minute

Actualy it's not, by default the option «SendKeyDelay» set to 5 ms, so after something like 200 loops there will be a 1 extra second of delay, and in the next minutes (after the first one) there will be less «{Space}» sends :)
