Actually "szünet" is a great suggestion. No idea why I didn't think of
it! "Szünet" is a noun, but if you want to cause something to pause, you
could say "szüneteltet".

Either "szünet" (pause, noun) or "szüneteltet" (approx. to pause sth,
verb) is good IMHO. "Szünetel" is also good for "it is making pause"
(ie. it's paused).

Let's see what Ákos thinks :)
