Default Pausing movie

I am having some trouble creating a pause button for my movie. Basically, my main timeline has several movie clips, there's some animation within each movie clip and some movie clips have children movie clips. What I want is to pause at an exact frame and there will be a button to resume at current paused position. Just like a regular pause button.

So I had the idea to make a mc spit out a variable that tells me it is currently playing, but with my setup this gets really messy, especailly with several children movie clips.

I saw this hack solution which makes a new printjob instance and it does the pausing perfectly. Apprarently this is a stupid way to pause the movie, so I am looking for a similar function that can allow the pause w/o prompting a window, ie. not a hacked solution! Thanks in advanced!

Hacked Way:

PHP Code:

function pauseMovie()
{
        var 
= new PrintJob();
        
p.start();
}

function 
onKeyDown()
{
        switch(
Key.getCode()){
                case 
80// p key
                
pauseMovie();
                break;
                case 
19// pause/break key
                
pauseMovie();
                break;
        }
}

Key.addListener(this);
