I suspect this belongs on a computer-oriented SE. A process is blocked when there is some external reason that it can not be restarted, e.g., an I/O device is unavailable, or a semaphore file is locked. A process is suspended means that the OS has stopped executing it, but that could just be for time-slicing (multitasking). There is no implication that the process can not be resumed immediately.
Neither of these words, especially blocked, are being used the same as in non-computer contexts.
