I would like to express the following:
Do X, and if it fails, do nothing.
For reasons that are out of scope here, I need it to be in the following form:
Do X or do nothing.
Now while this actually reflects what I want to say, I need the do nothing part to be only a single word. This means that I need a verb that expresses do nothing, but only uses a single word. Basically, something such as:
Do X or idle.
But "to idle" feels too weak here, as being idle is something different from explicitly doing nothing. Is there a word I might use?
