[slurm-users] Node suspend / Power saving - for *idle* nodes only?

I'm experimenting with slurm's power saving feature and shutdown of "idle" nodes works in general, also the power up works when "idle~" nodes are requested.
So far so good, but slurm is also shutting down nodes that are not explicitly "idle". Previously I drained a node to debug something on it and slurm shut it down when the SuspendTimeout was reached.

Is this something I can configure or should the SuspendProgramm deal with this and ignore poweroff requests for non-idle nodes? I haven't found a setting for this, if there is one, please point me to it. Btw, we're on 18.08.8.
