Node Operation Flexibility: Pause/Resume/Lock

AIOZ Node introduces the ability to pause your node temporarily. This means you can halt your node's operation when you need your computer's resources for other tasks and then effortlessly resume it when you're ready. In addition, you can lock your nodes to run in the background without interfering with your primary tasks, delivering uninterrupted service.

When you click the Pause button, a modal window will appear, asking for your confirmation to proceed with the pause action.
