Since your configuration already apparently meets your needs with a full
load going through firewall *and* IDS, why not simply run Snort in both
places all the time?

Active node - traffic, hits on rules, recording/alerting/whatever, no problem.
Standby node - no traffic, no hits on rules, no problem.
