I tried to do this a while back with my slave backend.  I found that  
MythTV would simply schedule around the shut-down slave instead of  
awakening it, so I abandoned the idea.  Has the behavior changed?

My master FE/BE is a miniITX system and really doesn't consume much  
power, but being able to have the slave shut down when it's not  
needed would be nice.
