Yes, but I just want to be sure tht the state "LB" is going to show up.
When this happens I'm pretty sure the thing will do what it's supposed to do.
I'm also wondering if the system will boot up when the powerline comes
online again. That would be very nice!

I don't really care about those fancy readings. I'm not watching those
stats all day :-)
If it does what it should do and protect my system in a decent way on
powerfails, I'm more then happy!
