I used to suspend my Disetronic pumps but for some reason I do not suspend  
the Animas.  I like that my Dise beeped at me when I did suspend--it was  like 
every 3 or 4 minutes!  I occasionally have forgotten to re-hook thus  the beep 
was handy.  I have forgotten once with my "Annie"--remembered a  couple hours 
later!  Yes, my BG was higher than I would have liked!   For me, I just let 
'er run and hope I remember to re-hook.
Congrats on pumping!  I am pretty sure you will be glad you chose to  pump!
