If it's done on a per AP basis, and only happens when nobody is connected, it 
probably doesn't have much effect. This will work when there aren't a lot of 
users so the various APs go completely idle on a regular basis.

If a client tries to connect right after it has gone idle, they will just end up 
connecting to a more remote AP (assuming there is one in range)
