Event Gateways need this option

I’m using Event Gateways, to get a Scheduled Task ran at 3 second or less intervals. I need these to run for days, but then I need it to stop so it reduces the overhead on the DB, by eliminating unnecessary polling. I can stop the EG in Lucee admin, but when Lucee restarts, it fires back up again. It would be nice if there is a Pause & Stop option, so an EG will not start itself again unless commanded to.
