The Suspend-Service cmdlet sends a suspend message to the Windows Service Controller for each of the specified serv
ices. While suspended, the service is still running, but its action is halted until resumed, such as by using Resum
e-Service. You can specify the services by their service names or display names, or you can use the InputObject par
ameter to pass a service object representing the services that you want to suspend.
