Resharper Tip : Pause temporarily for large files

Resharper can slow down older versions of visual studio (2005/2008) on large files for some reason. So when working on large files it helps to pause Resharper temporarily. 

The keyboard shortcut for pausing Resharper is ctrl+shift+alt+8
Instead of being stuck at: 
The icon changes to: 

Then when you are done editing the file you can unpause with the same shortcut (ctrl+shift+alt+8) 
Here is how I remember this shortcut: Its take an infinite amount of time so holy trinity + 8. 
where Holy trinity = ctrl+shift+alt and 8 = infinity on its side.
