Ability to temp suspend updates on slow/expensive connections

We have reports of users on slow or expensive network connections (ie: Airplane, Hotel, Train, Cellular) that they would like to temporarily suspend updates until they are on an unmetered connection.

We are requesting that a 'suspend updates' toggle switch be enabled in the client. We have found the cancel updates option is not totally reliable. Sometimes it will cancel the download after it has used the network (possibly at great expense).

This affects our MacOS users mostly, but it would also apply to windows also. Windows has an API for handling network interface metering, so this is less pressing on this platform.
