Speed up detecting changed status of droplet

I frequently need to poweroff a droplet in order to take a manual snapshot. However, it can take several minutes before the web control panel detects that the droplet has been powered off. Is there anything that you can do to speed up the detection of whether a droplet is "Active" or "Off"?

    Also, I'm curious if anybody knows if the API detects the status of a droplet immediately, or if it suffers from the same lag as the web control panel? If it is instant, then moving my workflow to the API would save me a lot of waiting time.
