The shutdown command for the 'newhidups' and 'usbhid-ups' drivers up to
(and including) nut-2.2.0 is broken for all vendors except MGE. You'll
need to upgrade to nut-2.2.1 or newer if you need your systems to return
after a power failure automatically. There is no workaround for this.
We're sorry for the inconvenience.
