Pause / Resume / Refresh

Pause monitoring the current Spotlight connection. Spotlight stops retrieving data from the connection. The Spotlight home page and drilldowns for the connection are not updated. Use the Resume command to resume monitoring the Spotlight connection. While the connection is paused, use Refresh to update the current window display.


  • Any actions that are in progress when you pause Spotlight are allowed to complete. No further actions are performed until you resume Spotlight's collection of data.
  • Pausing may affect Calibration. If calibration is in progress when the pause is started, it continues to run. The calibration finishes at the time it was originally set to finish. (It is not delayed by the Pause command.)
  • Pausing may affect drilldowns. Any drilldown that gathers information when it is started is affected by the Pause command.
