Can I pause a Hyper-V guest via the command line?

If so, could I do this over the network from my Win7 box?

Here is a suite of powershell commands to perform actions against Hyper-V (including starting/stopping). They should be usable remotely through PS Remoting as well, but I haven't tested that.
