Hrmph. Yet another overloaded word. "Leállítva" can just as well mean
"shut down" (adverb or adjective, not the verb). I'm tempted to
recommend "felfüggesztve" (~= suspended), but that of course overlaps
with the power management kind of "suspend".

I think " [Megállítva]" is better here or maybe "befagyasztva" could be considered which means frozen that probably does not collide with other usages like suspend. Your latest suggestion of "szüneteltetve", "szüneteltetés" is also good and less confusing than "leállítva" and even more distinct from it then "megállítva" so that may be even better.

IIRC the pause button on remote controls was explained as "pillanatállj"
in old manuals ("momentary stop"). Not bad from the meaning side but it
sounds super lame, plus I have no idea how to make an adverb/abjective
out of "pillanatállj" -- "egy pillanatra megállítva"? Tragic.

I have never ever heard anyone actually using that word other than in translated manuals. Probably for a reason...

Good idea.

+#: ../ui/gtk.c:1315
+msgid "_Grab Input"
+msgstr "_Bemenet elfogása"

"Bemeneti eszközök kisajátítása" is more accurate but of course sounds

How about "megragadás/a" for a translation of grab? But probably it sounds more horrible than your suggestion which is not so bad IMO. The problem with all of these is that they are not obvious to someone not knowledgeable about the concept but that may be true for the English term too.
