If so…how does the UPS ever know to turn that load back on?  You would have to hook a different PC to the UPS and run nut just to send the “load.on” command?

If the goal is just to perform a clean shutdown, and the power might cycle a few more times before coming back completely, then shutdown.stayoff might make more sense. A human could come along and manually power it back on.

I suspect a lot of people who want to maximize uptime would want the UPS to wait a bit for the battery to charge ("battery.charge.restart" -> "Minimum battery level for UPS restart after power-off") before powering the load back on.
