You can use Ctrl+Z to suspend the task, then do something like
# command && fg

Where 'command' is perhaps a script you've created, that will wait
however long you want, then exit, returning 0.

Since you're running under Windows, you should probably be using the
Windows tools, like setting the process priority to idle.

I really can't imagine why you would need this.  Whatever the problem,
there's no doubt a better way to solve it.
