One of the things we like to do before listing a model in the driver
list is to do a sanity check to make sure some of the basic features

The current suggestion is to plug the UPS into a power strip, or
something that will allow you to cut the input power while keeping it
connected to ground. Also, just in case things aren't completely
configured for shutting down properly, you will probably want to plug
in a dummy load (some light bulbs, for instance) to drain the UPS
battery, instead of pulling power to the computer if it has not shut
down properly.

If all goes well, the UPS should go from "OL" to "OB" to "OB LB", at
which point whatever you have configured as a shutdown script should
kick in.

Please post the output of 'upsc' to the list as well.

Thanks for testing!
