Older MGE UPS'es would have a 1 second resolution on the shutdown time
and a 10 second resolution on the startup time, so this is to be expected.

That is not a good idea.

Please provide more detailed info on your setup. You seem to have
hijacked an existing thread. Maybe because you have similar
hardware/problems, but you didn't tell. Be specific about *your* setup
when asking for questions. If possible, provide excerpts from logfiles
and startup messages. Otherwise we would have to guess what you're
using, which usually doesn't lead to the fastest resolution of a problem.

Best regards, Arjen
