I found it very interesting that this document mentions that the Color/B&W switch can be depressed. It mentions it in the game play/pause section. Were they just looking at the 7800? Does the 2600jr's Color/B&W switch depress like the game select and reset?

It doesn't, but if you manually toggle the color/bw switch down and up again you could implement pause on 2600 games for both 2600 and 7800 consoles. It's just not as user-friendly on 2600 consoles because it's not a momentary switch.

I don't know how many 2600 games actually implemented this.
