    rato is an indefinite amount of time, short or long, so it can be used as "moment", "ago", "while", "(some) time", etc. E.g.:

    "en un rato" ---> "in a moment"
    "hace rato" ----> " a while ago" or "sometime ago"
    "por un rato" ---> "for a while"
    "bastante rato" ---> " quite some time"
    continuaré jugando wii "un rato más" ---> J'll play wii "just another moment" (and then...five hours later)l...."bueno, un rato más"......
