I'm sorry, but you didn't understand my point fully. I don't want the client to _pause_ (since I prefer to
do so manually so I can turn off logging and checkpointing and keep working). I want to suspend _disk access_
and keep on working. Something like "suspend disk access if running". I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear.
Thank you for pointing out the 'pause client' option, though.
