You could get around this by using suspend-to-RAM or suspend-to-disk
instead of actually shutting the machine down.
OK, I should have tested it before making this suggestion.
After trying it I've found that it doesn't actually work this way, at
least not on my two-way SMP boxes. When the machine un-suspends, it's
in Owner status on BOTH slots. A machine that has just booted is only
in Owner status on Slot 1, so suspend-to-disk is actually worse than
just shutting the machine down completely.
