Yes, I have, but that's not what I was driving at. The question is, what do
you think is the difference between :

(a) pressing "suspend" and walking away, while being assured that suspend will
complete and leave the system ... suspended, until someone triggers a "resume"


(b) pressing "suspend" and walking away, while allowing the possibility that
someone might interrupt the suspend operation.


Personally, I don't see any difference.
