Default P2P nodes going to sleep?

Hi, I have a question/comment, and I hope you could help me with this. I put this for your consideration: Do you think that is possible that p2p leafs could let the ultrapeer know if they are going to sleep. I know that the right step would be for this leaf to disconnect from the p2p network, but what if the leaf could still "be connected" while it's sleeping. The ultrapeer would know that one of its leaf is sleeping. My question is, is this something feasible? how could the p2p application know that the node is going to sleep? and I guess gnutella has open fields, could something like this be implemented in the protocol in order for the leaf to transmit the "I'm sleeping" info to the ultrapeer?
thanks for your comments!!
