I started downloading XCode on my 10 mbit/s but it is 4 GB and I want to pause it for a while.


Open Mission Control and just click on the Downloading Xcode icon. This will pause it. Clicking again will resume.


If you're downloading via the App Store, if you click on the Purchased icon at the top of the App Store window, I think that there's the option to Pause an active download. I seem to remember seeing it while I downloaded Lion earlier today.
