Why bother? Either you can use condor_off -peaceful and leave a bunch
of machines idle, or you can let everything run as long as it can and
then restart. (Some sort of external resources in use? startup load?)

Except for the power savings, there's effectively no difference between
an idle CPU and a CPU where the job was killed. Either way, you didn't
recover those cycles.
