You can use mythshutdown in a script.

http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Mythshutdown is the best documentation I know 
of--but is severely lacking, so feel free to add to it when you figure 
it out.  ;)  Also, feel free to upload your, "reboot when safe," script 
to the wiki and place it in the category 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Category:Scripts .
