Yes, it didn't make any difference. But, upon reading
this, I thought I'd go back and try putting the delay
between startup of server and monitor, and that does
suppress the notification. Ten seconds works for me.
Everything else seems to still be in order; I cut the
power to the UPS and the computer shut down.

Unrelated: I noticed some problematic behavior with
2.0 if I disconnect and reconnect the UPS from the
computer, but I'll try and see if 2.2 fixes that. If
not, I'll start a new thread.

Got it, thanks again.
