Commands Charles.  Since the pi is a very low drain bit of kit, I 
expected to be able to lengthen the shutdown delay, to at least use 50% 
of the battery, which should be several hours but its stuck at 2 
minutes. Unreal, but it is what it is.

So I note running those cmds on this 1500wa APC under this desk. 

Take care now.
