Weird. This is not something the driver can do, unless you specifically
tell it to kill the power (-k). I see that you're using Linux

Well, it appear to detect the UPS all right:

Short of the weird value reported for the serial number, nothing wrong so
far. It only looks like it reports the wrong indexed string, which is very
strange. What does 'lsusb -vvv' report? I'm not sure if this isn't due to
the fact that you seem to be running Linux 2.6.24-17-xen. I don't know if
the libusb library will work with that.

Only BatterySystem.Battery.AudibleAlarmControl can be read after this, the
remainder of the report descriptor can't be read correctly. Í have no clue
why this is happening.
