If you are refering to rocket launches to other planets, it is the time when the other planet is in position so you can reach it. Usually that is the time when the planet is closest to earth or something like that. There might be a two week launch window for Mars, then you might have to wait another year for the same mission. Basically, it is the time frame when all the conditions for a successful mission are in place.

If a launch is delayed 8 hours and the astronauts are all buckled in and waiting how do they take a bathroom break?

Most likely if a launch is delayed 8 hours, the launch window (the time in which the spacecraft can be launched) will be missed and the launch will be re-scheduled for another day. Therefore the crew would be removed from the spacecraft and not have to be sitting strapped in their seats for that long. However, if for some reason they SHOULD have to go to the bathroom while strapped in, they wear special astronaut 'diapers' for just that reason.
