Gary,

We were getting object lock exceptions when saving *IBM libraries, so we ended 
up only saving them once a week and ending TCP/IP and the servers completely 
only for that. On a daily basis, we only save user libraries. There seems to be 
no problem with this, as long as we end the servers that allow user access 
until the synchronized save-active checkpoint is reached. This allows devices 
with auto-reconnect enabled (some shop floor workstations) to more or less 
transparently come back up by themselves except on Monday morning when a reboot 
is required.
