[Nut-upsuser] APC UPS won't restart after power outage

Installed new APC Back-UPS CS 350 on single server running openSUSE 11.2
64-bit and configured NUT 2.4.1 (SUSE package) according to instructions.

When testing, NUT shuts down the server correctly and instructs the UPS to
power down. UPS does so after some 20s delay, everything without errors. But
after restoring main power, even after waiting for 1/2h UPS does not by
itself turn on again, all LEDs are dark. One has to manually press the UPS's
power button, which makes server and monitor run again immediately.

What could be wrong that prevents UPS from turning itself on again?

Below output of upsc:
