window.onblur = function() {
   //stop the timer
};

window.onfocus = function() {
   //start the timer from the last value
};

if you want don't want the user to trigger any event on the screen when the timer is ticking, then you need to overlay a transparent div on top of your screen.

you can save the timer value at the blur event and start the timer again from saved value on focus, right?

update your setTimeout :

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

var pause = false; // default value

setTimeout(function() {
         if( !pause ) {
             // your current code here
             // I suppose you've an other setTimeout here too
         }
}, 1000); // 1000 is your current delay

to stop it, just set pause to true :

pause = true;
