Of course. Do as I asked you and it *will* make a difference.

Use nut-2.6.0 instead. The above version is too old and I have no idea  
what variables it supports (and I don't want to take the time finding

The name change of the command is critical here. NUT will use whatever  
mapping it finds first, so that's the reason I asked you to use  
'shutdown.return' for this specific HID path instead. Otherwise the  
command will never be reached if you call the driver with '-k' and  
when you run 'shutdown.reboot' it will probably find a different HID  
path first.
