void vTaskSuspend( xTaskHandle pxTaskToSuspend );

INCLUDE_vTaskSuspend must be defined as 1 for this function to be available. See the configuration section for more information.

Suspend any task. When suspended a task will never get any microcontroller processing time, no matter what its priority.

Calls to vTaskSuspend are not accumulative - i.e. calling vTaskSuspend () twice on the same task still only requires one call to vTaskResume () to ready the suspended task.

pxTaskToSuspendHandle to the task being suspended. Passing a NULL handle will cause the calling task to be suspended.

Example usage:

 void vAFunction( void )
 xTaskHandle xHandle;
Create a task, storing the handle.
     xTaskCreate( vTaskCode, "NAME", STACK_SIZE, NULL, tskIDLE_PRIORITY, &xHandle );
Use the handle to suspend the created task.
     vTaskSuspend( xHandle );
The created task will not run during this period, unless
another task calls vTaskResume( xHandle ).
Suspend ourselves.
     vTaskSuspend( NULL );
We cannot get here unless another task calls vTaskResume
with our handle as the parameter.
