Arjen, now I'm a bit confused. In your script you are saying to shut down
nut before issuing the upsdrvctl command to tell the UPS to start a delayed
shutdown. But as shutting down nut causes the usbhid-ups driver to exit, I
thought that would prevent the command being sent to the UPS? I know that if
I just have the upsdrvctl shutdown command without telling the nut service
to exit, the UPS shuts down after the 60 second delay. I can understand
adding the delay after giving the shutdown command and before stopping the
services, but not the other way around. What am I missing here?

Thanks, David
