[Nut-upsuser] APC Smart UPS at a Mac Mini

I'm using a APC Smart UPS with a Mac Mini, connected using a USB serial converter.
Works fine so far, the Mac Mini will be shut down, a NAS connected of the network to the nut on Mac Mini will also shut down, perfect.

However, the ups will not be shut down. Very unfortunate, since the Mac will not start again, if the power comes back before the batteries are completely empty.
I read about /etc/killpower and a may be required modification of the shutdown script.
But there is no such script in Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

Can anyone help?

Thank you very much and cheers,
