Freeze

To suspend the activity of an application or extension package. Freezing a package is similar to removing an external store that a package is stored on. In most cases, a frozen package should free up memory on the Newton device.

To reactivate a package, you thaw it.

Freeze also refers to a situation where the operating system becomes unresponsive, usually due to a lack of heap space.
