background downloads after turning xbox off

Hi have a 360s and i have background downloads on (which i'm happy with) but I don't have great bandwidth and i want to watch something on the net. Is there anyway to temporally stop the download without changing the settings? I think with the old white xbox you could long press the power button and it would stop it but doesn't seam to work with the s

Thank you in advance

If this happens just cancel the download which is a pain, but it doesn't matter because on the 360 when you redownload it, it will remember where it got upto as long as you don't delete it from the HDD, so you won't lose much and you can then save your bandwith for streaming etc. I have this problem myself as i live in a desolate area with just 3 houses lol but my connection just to say gets up to 3mbps at a push, so I do the same if I decide to go off and watch something and need to save my bandwith.

I hope this helps
