Locking planning area/planning book during batch execution?



I'm curious how people out there solve the issue of users locking the planning area while batch jobs are executed on it?

We have a globally used system, so someone somewhere is always at work and could potentially open the planning area in edit mode via a planning book.

Thus when we have to run batch jobs for loading and manipulating data the jobs may crash since users can lock data while the job runs.

Currently we manage by informing people via mail whenever they should not edit data. But this is not really practical once the group of users become large and people might forget etc.

Is there an elegant way to solve this issue?

Ideally you'd need a way to lock/unlock access to a planning book or planning area for certain users I suppose?
