Even better
Authored by: SOX on Mar 13, '08 01:47:43PM

get the PID for the login daemon, and send it a STOP message (via kill)
kill -s STOP <pid>
this will freeze the log-in server till you send it a Continue message
kill -s CONT <PID>

or put it all together:
kill -s STOP <pid> ; sleep 3600; kill -s CONT <pid>
