the genericups driver.)

Have you tried the 'bcmxcp' driver? genericups only handles
contact-closure feedback, and cannot provide detailed status

Another thing to note: by default, NUT only notifies you when on
battery (OB). The shutdown happens after the UPS signals a "low
battery" condition (LB), which is usually some time after OB, when the
battery has been mostly depleted. There are examples in the
documentation which explain how to shut down after X minutes of "on
battery" time, but there are race conditions associated with this
method, and if the power comes back after the UPS has told the system
to shut down, it may not be restarted properly (you should probably
test this).
