I came up with an idea for a blaze grinder where I surround it on all sides with fenced in, watered-down snow golems. But I'm afraid they'll start attacking me before I finish. I've tryed covering the spawner with everything from torches to glowstone, but they keep spawning. How do I temporarily stop spawning without destroying the spawner?

Throw torches not only on the spawner, but also a couple of blocks around it. Blazes can spawn at high light levels, so you need A LOT of torches, like 1 torch every 2 blocks.

Its usless making something to kill them. YOU have to kill them yourself or you get nothing.

Light level 12 or higher prevents blazes from spawning, but it might be easier to just fill in the spawnable space with blocks. You will need 8x8x2 blocks. Check the wiki for the exact details of where to place them.

If you are on Single Player, Connect a redstone torch and the spawner with a redstone wire

You need to cover every block within a large space (even outside the platform the spawner is on) with torches

Alternatively, you cover the spawner with dirt (or another material)

Go out 3 blocks on each side... The same level as the spawner, and the one above... That gives to a 7*7 area... Then you need to make it 8*8. The direction in which x and z decrease (f3) is the corner that needs to be extended. Remove all torches and you'll still be safe. Also makes it easy to make any kind of trap

I block off the room so they can't get out and then use a piston and dirt to fill in the spawnable space for them.

Trying to get games written for windows to work on a Linux machine is like trying to put a diaper on an incontinent buffalo. Sure, you might get it all done, but you'll certainly be left with a huge mess, and it's very time consuming.

I don't care about xp in this case. I have an xp farm in the overworld.

What would that do? And whatever it does, does it work on other spawner types as well?

Poor lava on it, also cover other areas with blocks that they could spawn on.

No, if you don't kill them yourself, you get nothing. No rods, no orbs, no nothing. They used to drop the rods still, but this is no longer the case.
