Surely this shouldn't be too difficult to implement via a Plugin.

One could either simply blank out the screen after a configurable
time once the Pause button is pressed (and no other key). Another
idea would be to show a small OSD containing a configurable 
picture of one's on choice that is randomly placed and shown on
the main (large) OSD while blanking out the background. Maybe
as an extension of the Picture in Picture plugin or the Showpicture
plugin.

regards,
Reinhard
