Ahead of time you can inform your BE users of scheduled maintenance:

TYPO3 >= 4.5 : create a sys_news record in the backend. It will be 
displayed below the BE login form.

TYPO3 < 4.5 : add to localconf.php:
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['loginNews'][] = array(
   'date' => '31.12.2011 11:00',
   'header' => 'Scheduled maintenance',
   'content' => 'On December 31st around 11 am the TYPO3 core will be 
upgraded. It will not be possible to login during approximately one hour 
(if everything works out). Make sure that all work is saved before the 
upgrade starts; there will not be an extra warning when the upgrade starts.'

To lock the BE for users/admins you can set [BE][adminOnly] in the 
Install Tool.

Kind regards / met vriendelijke groet,
