Patching has no way of detecting what processes are running. Scritping can but those can't be tied together as dependents. Your best bet might be to not do a reboot for your detect and deploy schedule and at a later time use the scripting engine to check if those processes are running, if they are don't force a reboot. If they aren't do the reboot. 

 

Patching happens at 8pm and runs until 10pm 

Scrpting checks at 10:30pm for those processes and acts accordingly
