[PLUG] pre-reboot scripted message?

I have a laptop I just built as one of the external DNS servers at work. If
you reboot it with the lid closed it locks up, even with an external monitor
attached; when booting or rebooting with the lid open initially its fine.

Can the OS somehow reply to for example a 'shutdown -r now' with a message
like "open the lid on ns2 for a successful reboot"?
