Amongst other things, you forgot a question mark :mellow: I was able to imagine that one, but I do not exactly understand what you mean by 'pausing' a process. Elaborate.

Well you can click on its icon in the systray which by default will 'pause' a script. Or you can add your own code to the script. See the example here, Function HotKeySet.

I don't like repeating myself but give a better explanation of 'pausing' a program... Apparently you use AutoIt to simulate keystrokes / mouseclicks. If you want to use the program normally for a while after some clicks, just put in a Sleep() command, maybe surrounded by a While [condition] .. statements WEnd block.

Well then take a look at snowmaker's suggestion? Alternatively, you could use AutoIt to take care of the mouseclicks :mellow:
