There are situation where foldit is run on a computer that may need to be put to sleep. However, with a running script the CPU and other components will be very hot and I would find it not desirable to put the system into a sleep mode under those circumstances.
A pause button would be great to stop foldit in its current state and let the machine cool down for a few minutes so it can be put to sleep. Later, pressing the pause button again should revive the client at the same point where the action stopped. For the icons you might want to use the II for pause and |> for 'play'/resume.
I can envision this to be easiest implemented in the script interpreter between script commands. The pause button coould then be placed inside the script window, next to 'cancel' and 'show output'.
