I have used net stop condor on submission machines regularly. on
execute machines I would be wary...

Are you executing condor_off from a remote machine or locally... if
remote you may not be doing it from a machine with admin access - I
suggest taking a look in the master logs on the execute machines where
you may well find a line saying the equivalent of:
"I was asked to stop by machine X but they do not have permission."

condor_off doesn't normally kill the master, which means that the
whole system can be easily started later with condor_on.

Plus it means you can use -graceful or -peaceful if you so desire...
