When texting guys, I find it hard to just wait for a reply. So I end up texting more than once. I hold out for an hour or so but I just want to know if this is a power game to not text me back right away. And right away I mean like under 15 minutes.

In your situation, I'm not sure; but in general, there absolutely can be.
It sounds dumb, but there really is a whole science to texting -- not just with how long you take to respond, but also with the content of your messages (and in your case, the amount of messages sent, too).
All of these little factors can be analyzed for a deeper meaning, which may or may not be true. For example, the guy who you're talking to could conclude that, "She totally likes me, since she's always sending me multiple messages when I don't reply back right away."
Taking forever to respond could indicate that this guy is either busy, not into the conversation, not into you, or just not into texting. Since he has you wondering about why he takes so long, you could say that he's got a sense of power.0
