PE-2950 Demand Based Switching

Does anyone know if it is possible to enable demand-based switching on a Power Edge 2950 in the BIOS from the Linux command-line without rebooting?  OMSA reports that it's disabled in the BIOS, but doesn't appear to have an option to change it.  It would be nice to let my compute servers cool off on weekends when they're not under heavy load, but not quite nice enough to schedule downtime!

Thanks,
  Carl
