I have a simple set-up in that we're a small organisation but operate 24hrs with around 40 staff active at any one time. I have three different backup routines and a true air-gap drive that contains two of those methods (Veeam and Imaging) that come off-site with me daily.
The third method is replication of our host to a location across town. Other than being a disaster-recovery component this remote host serves no other purpose, with all replicated VM's remaining powered-off.
So it strikes me that the easiest way to isolate this host is to have a wifi power adapter (on a totally separate network) power off and on the switch that connects it to the primary network. These things are a dime-a-dozen and can be controlled from your mobile or on a schedule. No worries about dirty shutdowns or having to create a process to do a graceful shutdown - just power-off the switch! This could equally apply to a back-up PC or SAN etc.
I know with won't satisfy all scenarios, but am I missing something here? It just seems too easy!

It seems that scripting might be of use for your scenario, i.e. a script to check if the copy job is still running - you could extend this to check to see if any job is still running before shutting down.
