Probably it 's overloaded (pentium3 + amd athlon x2 + net switch + external
HD). However, most of the time and that's when I need the UPS there's no
activity on these (no one is doing anything) and there's an overload LED
indicator after all. I can understand that battery LED indicator can be
unreliable but I dont think the same applies to the overload LED.

So, one vote for the battery :)
