Gary,
Neil's suggestion has another advantage,
if you have an error that you need to clear by ending and restarting
the subsystem, it generally causes less turmoil to end QPGMR than
QCTL. I actually have an interactive OPS subsystem that I use for this.
When I bring down my main interactive, I also bring down my programmers
subsystems to make sure everything is cleared for backups.
Like Neil said, make a workstation entry of QPADEV* , and yes others
will get a signon if it is up during the day. To prevent unwanted use,
when you have the subsystem up you can *EXCLUDE authority to the
SBSD.
 - good luck
