Hi Charles!

Good point - so I've since switched to the nutdrv_qx driver, all other 
config remaining identical and it works just as with the legacy 
blazer_usb driver. All OK.

I invoked the upscmd -l and it returned the following, same as the P220, 
which - given that it shares the same vendor/product IDs - is not 

Instant commands supported on UPS [ups]:

beeper.toggle - Toggle the UPS beeper
load.off - Turn off the load immediately
load.on - Turn on the load immediately
shutdown.return - Turn off the load and return when power is back
shutdown.stayoff - Turn off the load and remain off
shutdown.stop - Stop a shutdown in progress
test.battery.start - Start a battery test
test.battery.start.deep - Start a deep battery test
test.battery.start.quick - Start a quick battery test
test.battery.stop - Stop the battery test

I'll test sending each of them and see what seems to take effect.

Next time you have a maintenance window, can you please try nutdrv_qx and let us know how that works?
