in reply to We interrupt this program...

Assuming Win32, get yourself ProcessExplorer, it is what the TaskManager always should have been. One of many nice features is that it allows you to suspend and resume processes.

Alternatively, if the process produces regular output to the terminal, you can use ^S to suspend and any key to resume. And if you have your Command Prompt windows configured with "Quick Edit" setting, then left-clicking the window will suspend (assuming output) and right-click resume.

    And in the *nix world you can press Control-Z in the command window. Restart the app with fg. (Update: this uses signals SIGSTP/SIGSTOP and SIGCONT -- assuming their default behavior.)
