Pause Jquery Cycle when Fancybox opened

Posted on 2010-09-03

I have a little issue with my site that I cannot solve. you can see the issue at conceptparadise.com/dm The problem is that when I open a flash animation in fancybox over the top of jquery cycle, the flash animation stahhers when the banners in the background rotate.

What I am trying to do and failing at it pausing the cycle plugin when the fancybox is opened and then resuming the cycle plugin once fancybox is closed.

I have attached the two example of code that I have at the moment and where i have got to. What I am going is probably wrong!!!

I would really appreciate any help that anyone could give me as I am going crazy with this..

Thank you in advance
<!-- Banner Rotator -->    
 <script type="text/javascript" src="http://cloud.github.com/downloads/malsup/cycle/jquery.cycle.all.2.74.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
    $('#s3').cycle({fx: 'fade',speed: 1500 });
$('#pauseButton').click(function() { 
$('#resumeButton').click(function() { 
    $('#s3').cycle('resume', true); 
$('#fancybox-wrap').show('slow', function() {
	alert('fancybox show');
$('#fancybox-wrap').hide('slow', function() { 
    $('#s3').cycle('resume', true);
