i want to save proccess execution state to hdd the load it and continue execution – Boris Oct 9 '09 at 14:48

If one wants to (just) "suspend" a current process can easily send a STOP signal:

kill -STOP id

Then resume later:

kill -CONT id

It will not survive a reboot and it is tied to a particular machine.
