TS Shara Soho II

Yes. Same behavior when I kill all service and use just nutdrv_qx -k

Even worst, the ups just cycle the power and turn on again.

I agree. I'll contact the manufacturer. Too many bugs to make a work around
I don't see how I can get it working if it doesn't stay off when I need. It
does not stay off with shutdown.stayoff. It also come
back on after shutdown.return even if there is no AC power.
