Simplify maintenance mode

It is hard to put a machine with dependicies in maintenance mode.
For example in cluster you have to put the machine in maintenance mode, the cluster, some services on the other machines in the cluster.
If that could be simplifyed it would be good.
Like: maintenance mode for machine and dependencies.

    As and extension to this idea things I saw would be when patching a domain controller if I put just it in maintenance mode other DC's would alert on replication issues while it was patching. Also my active active DHCP servers if I put the one I was patching in maintenance mode the other would still give alerts about communication with it while it was rebooting. Would be great if that could be fixed to where I did not have to put both DHCP servers into maintenance mode or put all DC's into maintenance mode when I am working on just one of them.

    Would be great to have this function added to Schedule Maintenance Mode - ie if you put computerA in maintenance mode have a select box to put any Windows Cluster in MM also.
