I would like to have a perl script ping a server and if it is down, display a webpage in full screen indicating its down. once it see that the server is back up it will close out the screen. any ideas?

There is such a property in html <BODY> tag: onLoad. On starting testing the server you print your html page up to(including) BODY tag + some layer, which shows any message you want. When your server responces to your script, you print end of html-code, so onLoad action starts running. And in onLoad action you put this.window.close() javascript action.
You could test server using socket operation in perl, so you will need to know perl, sockets and javascript to do this.
Such an idea
Best Regards,
