No, I just don't have a lot of spare time on my hand lately. You could  
try if changing

     { "shutdown.reboot", 0, 0,  
"UPS.APCGeneralCollection.APCDelayBeforeReboot", NULL, "10",  


     { "shutdown.return", 0, 0,  
"UPS.APCGeneralCollection.APCDelayBeforeReboot", NULL, "1",  

helps. Looking in the apcupsd sources seems to indicate that this  
isn't a timer at all, but instead just a flag that forces a reboot  

Given the brokenness of the APC HID PDC implementation (the apcupsd  
project uses about half a dozen ways to shutdown), I doubt that the  
support status of APC is going to improve a lot. If you have not  
already tried the apcupsd project, I'd suggest to try that too. Since  
NUT is not focussed on one specific make, we probably can never give  
the same support. This is also due to the fact that none of the active  
developers has access to one of these devices.

Best regards, Arjen
