Pausing and resuming video

I have a video with cue points. At various cue points, I want to pause the video and the time, have a layer pop-up, and then, upon closing layer, the video and timeline continue.  How can this be done? I have the movie on the main layer with cue points. At the cue point, I trigger to pause timeline, pause video, and show layer. They do their stuff on the layer, then when they click a button on the layer, I want the layer to close and the video and the timeline to continue. Except I do not see how to make the timeline continue, because the button is on the layer, and there is no trigger that, upon clicking a button on the layer, pauses the timeline on the base slide.  Any ideas?
