What if...

one of the managers speaking turns and asks the Chief Justice to suspend his/her time until the absent Senators return to their seats?

1. Roberts will decline to issue the requested ruling

since there is no rule mandating that Senators be present for every moment of an impeachment trial. There is merely a decorum "guideline" stating that Senators "should plan on being in attendance" at all times --- not that Senators "must" be in attendance.
