Hi Steve,

you missed:
- the Debian release (Etch assumed)
- the nut release (2.0.4 assumed)
- the nut driver used

yep, Debianism documented:
check (6)

this is a behavior of the driver, the UPS or both.
it may be changed, depending upon the hardware capabilities.
have a look at the driver manpage, along with upsrw / upscmd

so, everything is fine under the sun ;-)
