simple to just hide and unfold that's not quite the same thing.

LilyPond prints precisely as much music as you provide. If you only input a few notes, then that is all you will (and should) get.

If you require additional empty space, simply use the spacer rest. For instance, "s1*10" will result in the space equivalent to ten whole notes.

You can use simultaneous music to make this process very clear. Consider:

  << \new Staff \repeat unfold 4 \relative c' { c4 d e f | g a b c }
     \new Staff << \relative c' { c8 d e f g } \\ { s1*8 } >> >>

Here we have a second staff with only five quavers for the time being, and we would like the staff to extend as long as the eight measures above. The << \\ >> construct makes it easy to independently specify the notes for display as well as the desired overall duration.
