I was just stuck in a multiplayer Starcraft 2 game for 10 minutes, because I didn't know how to unpause the game!

So please, fellow gamers, help me and other newbies out and explain us how to unpause the game!

Open the menu (F10) and click on "Resume" to unpause the game. The click "Return to Game" to close the menu and keep on playing.
