This could be done by a small script on the headnode (e.g. also in a  
load-sensor which you "abuse" slightly in this case), which will  
power up nodes (by any ethernet or serial controlled mains outlet) if  
there are pending jobs, and issue a proper shutdown (like /sbin/init  
0 in Linux) in case where a node is idling and no waiting jobs.
