I am running NUT 2.2.0 compiled from the FreeBSD ports tree.

I don't know how to switch the outlets on & off though.. The only 
parameters appear to be relating to delayed shutdown & startup.

I managed to set the low battery level OK though (and then shut my PC 
down by mistake :) so I can actually set values.. Is it just that 
usbhid-ups doesn't support outlet switching? (yet hopefully :)
