There is not a way to stop them. The point of the particle generator is to create moving particles.

You could render a frame of the particles, then import the image you rendered and align it as need be. Depending on the needs of the scene in quesiton, this might work.

you are able to stop the movement of particles by setting the speed gradient to its lowest setting.
