[Tutor] Stopping a webservice

I have written a Python script that constantly checks for incoming
connections. It is a class and runs a while loop until shutdown is set to
True. Something like:

class Connection(object):
    def __init__(self):
        self.shutdown = False

    def mainloop(self):
        while not self.shutdown:
            print "We keep checking..."

I have written a GUI and when I click the Quit-button, I do
"connection.shutdown = True", which works great.

The plans are to run this on my webserver. I created a webpage with a start
and stop button, the starting works great. But how could I remember this
class to call "class.shutdown = True" any given time when I press the stop
