Schedule Server to Stop and Start through SST

Currently the SST allows to set the scheduling of the server to either Trigger at a certain time or to Start and Stop within the 24 hours.

We would need the ability to schedule the Data Extract Server to be stopped during the weekily DB Reorg being done by IBM Team and start after this period. This is requiring us to put in a schedule for every day of the week as the Scheduler only allows to Start and Stop within a 24hours.

Please advice if any option in SST that will enable the scheduler to Stop the server for a short period of time and then Start.

How will this idea be used?

To have an option to schedule the server to be stopped for a certain period of time of a day of a week and keep it running on all other times and reduce the intervention of Stop and Start during the DB Reorg activity.
