You mean the user profile, I suppose? (I have no idea what Handyman's chat is, I suppose it is a mod). I do see, however, a link there to "User notes" (I am using a translation, so I'm not sure what the exact wording is in English). That list takes me to what is essentially the MCP for that user, which has to the left an option "Ban". When I click that, I find the particular user pre-filled into the form, which gives me several options for ban-period, including 1 hour. (Actually, I think it would make more sense for the link to be labeled "Moderate user" or something like that, because it gives access to much more than just the user notes).
This is probably down to permissions. The user I was testing this with, is a global moderator. Not sure what role assignments, but I didn't change it much from stock phpBB3.
