Prevent shutdown (or any other script) when DrivePool does scan/check/balance


I am running a powershell script that initiates a system shutdown at a specific time - nothing fancy, basically just a  "shutdown -s -t 60". 

I would like not to execute this script when DrivePool is doing anything, be it measuring, checking, balancing (or anything I have missed here). Is that possible? Are any "flags" accessble that I could use in a script?

Initially I thought Windows Task Scheduler would be up to the job, because it has an option to prevent starting a task if the system is "idle", but this appears only to measure user activity. I would need something from DrivePool that I could pick up in my script, even if its is just a temp file that is created when DrivePool does something and removed when finished.
