Activity Monitor - Task State - SUSPENDED

I'm running a huge query on 70M rows.
Why does the Activity Monitor alway show the task is SUSPENDED?
I have a message "Executing Query'
it's been running for 2 hours.

Any idea what might be going on

may be the system is being hammered and it is not responding properly. can you see the query actually being run /executed?

It finally completed after 7 hours.
Why does it constantly show SUSPENDED?

I have seen it where the system goes very unresponsive and in NOT RESPONDING state where you think that it isn't doing anything but actually it is. Its how Microsoft is I am afraid :)

Typically you will see suspended when the session is waiting for some event to complete.  Since your query is on 70M rows, it would be fair to assume that it is waiting on I/O.
