I don't know about that specific hardware, but the variables which would control this are battery.charge.restart ("Minimum battery level for UPS restart after power-off") and ups.delay.start ("Interval to wait before restarting the load (seconds)"). Check the output of "upsrw <ups>" to see if that variable is supported with your combination of UPS and driver.

Which version of NUT are you using? There might be a newmge-shut driver included as well.
