You can't pause a running test but you can decrease the load by stopping the virtual users till 0 and increase them later on.

This is done in the Runtime section while a test is running.

This is not an answer, but an upvote!

I understand the question in this direction: you run a scenario and got to a point where "interesting things" (whatever they are) happen. Thats the time when you want to pause the scenario execution. So no users were created/stopped (the load stays the same, except you can of course add/stop user manually) and the scenario won't stop because the maximum run time is reached.
I know this behaviour from HP LoadRunner and this is sometimes really helpful.

There are many usecases when you actually want to pause the pre-defined scenario, so this would be a realllllly nice feature!
