`multipass suspend` command

The multipass suspend suspends instances specified as arguments. You can also pass the --all option to suspend all instances. Without arguments, the command will suspend the primary instance, if it exists. For example:

$ multipass suspend boisterous-tortoise
$ multipass ls
Name                    State             IPv4             Image
boisterous-tortoise     Suspended         --               Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Only Running instances can be suspended. Suspended instances can be resumed with multipass start.
