Yes, The UPS should be sent a "delayed shutdown" command, upsdrvctl 
shutdown, to tell it to shut down _after_ the box.  The amount of the 
delay can be set in ups.conf.  The UPS delayed shutdown turns off the 
output sockets on the UPS.  On some UPS's this gives an audible clunk.

It looks as if the command upsdrvctl shutdown is not being executed. Does 
the Ubuntu distribution of NUT include a script to do this?
