I'll play with these a bit tonight. I am pretty sure the UPS wasn't shutting
off the load (at least within the expected time frame) when low battery
triggered a shut down, resulting in the computer not rebooting after line
power was restored to the UPS. I am going to test this more carefully tonight
to see if I can get that working properly.
