[Dovecot] inetd config - dovecot doesn't exits

Is there any option for dovecot to exit when is unneded?

I mostly use dovecot via shell process (ie. something like
/usr/sbin/dovecot --exec-mail imap)

But sometimes I want to use it remotely via tcp and I run dovecot via

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
localhost:imap           stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/lib/dovecot/imap-login
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

in inetd.conf works good, but dovecot stays, even if all clients ended
their connections. How can I make dovecot to exit after last client
