[mythtv-users] Shutdown SBEs but not MBE with 0.21

I only found an old (2005) post asking this question and there was
noconclusion at that time
With mythtv 0.21 is it possible to get the MBE to shutdown SBEs that
don't have work, without shutting itself down?
I setup an old laptop to act as a WOL server running 24/7- at shutdown
the BE sent a message to the server with start time & MAC & the server
schedules a wol call via 'at'. When the FE starts it would also send a
WOL packet the the BE (not actually implemented that yet).
The only 'problem' was that I had to force the BE to wakeup if I wanted
to do anything else, like schedule something new, use mythweb etc. I
then thought I could configure the laptop as an MBE with no tuners and
convert the existing BE to an SBE. I've done that today and modified the
MBE/SBE (&FE) nodes to use the new MBE, but I don't see how I can get
the MBE to shutdown & restart the SBE.
Seems to me to be the sort of thing that should be supported in a
multi-node MythTV environment...
Any tips or pointers are welcome
