I've recently done something similar (reboot node after whatever jobs 
run on it finish) using pbs_python in only a few lines of (Python) 
code. There is no extra script looking for the node note, the Python 
script polls the state of the node until it's only "offline", proceeds 
to do whatever it needs to reboot the node and as soon as the node 
goes into state "down" it clears the "offline" state.
