With regards to the “wp-maintenance-mode” plugin – I have successfully used this plugin for a year or more using the built-in static themes, however when attempting to use the built in theme titled “Animate (Flash)” for the maintenance mode splash page on one of my sites, the animation never appears and/or fails to load completely (I checked using the latest versions of IE, FF, Chrome, and Safari browsers.), and then the server became overloaded. This caused a TOS violation since I am on a shared server and my site was pulled down by my hosting company.
The plugin does appear to work properly when using the other built in themes though, however many monitoring services will show your site as down when in maintenance mode.
