I know it's possible but I've never done it.

The reason I know it's possible is because there's a great deal of
stuff I've read here and there about how to put dhclient to sleep
when your laptop goes to sleep, and how to wake it back up again
when your laptop wakes back up again.

Have you had any luck just duplicating the server config stanza?
