Your computer would turn on again if

  1. The AC power from the UPS unit was stopped and then started again.

  2. Your BIOS option to restart on AC return was set correctly.

If you want this to happen automatically, then your shutdown sequence 
should include a "delayed shutdown" order to the UPS unit.  The delay is 
by default 20 sec.  The "delayed shutdown" has the effect of turning off 
the power outlets of the UPS unit after the delay.
