Hello Gene, By "auto start" I assume you mean the automatic power on of a box 
when wall power returns after a power failure. For this to work, two things are 

  1. The UPS power outlets have been turned off.

  2. The box's BIOS has been set to "power up on AC return".  (The words may 
change, it depends on the BIOS.)

The problem may be that the box is turned off without a command to the UPS to 
later turn off the power outlets.  When the power outlets are turned off, you 
should hear the "clunk" of the relays.
