There is no "Under Maintenance" setting for LS.

Possible workarounds would be to use an htaccess file to redirect users or password protect the directory.

That's a matter of opinion in this case where you can simply expire all surveys to put them on hold without loosing any data.

However, feel free to add a feature request or, better, code this yourself and submit the patch.

I'd say it would be a "good to have".

But even Wordpress, a software used a lot more and with a lot more resources doesn't offer this as a basic function, but requires a plugin for this.
