I use a similar script to check for various things on the backend
(slimserver clients, ssh sessions, transcoding, etc).  When the script
tells mythbackend that the system is still busy, mythbackend just
restarts its idle countdown - on my system that is 60 seconds, which
means the check script will be run every 60 seconds until it gives the
all clear.
