Gary,
What we do is:
 - 30 minutes before EOD we hold all user JOBQs, this gives
their jobs a chance to complete before we start doing saves, etc.
and it prevents anyone from flooding the system with submitted
jobs when they see what time it is.
 - 15 minutes before EOD we SNDBRKACT telling them the
system will be going down and asking them to signoff.
SNKBRKACT is in TAATOOL, it sends a break message
only to active WS rather than all.
 - at EOD we ENDSBS *IMMED. Only ever had 1 or 2 complaints
about this. When a user did, we pointed out they were warned and
if they wanted to keep working they were going to have to explain
to the rest of the company why reports were late the next day.

So far this works fairly well for us.
