Stop the animation thread. The Sketch window will remain open but will be static and unresponsive. Use Py5Surface.is_stopped() to determine if a Sketch has been stopped or not.
This method is different from Py5Surface.pause_thread() in that it will irreversably stop the animation. Use Py5Surface.pause_thread() and Py5Surface.resume_thread() if you want to pause and resume a running Sketch.
Underlying Processing method: PSurface.stopThread
stop_thread() -> bool
