Hi I have installed a new system in work that is controlled by my PC. I should have a UPS connected, I was told windows would have drivers for it but can not find any info? Does any one know of any software that will control my USP device

yes looked there. Two icons, but they do not contain any info on UPS

I used "running on batteries". Set a time to shut down hard drive and so on.

Bit puzzled by the reference to 2 icons. Which OS do you have?

Don't see how Laptop settings will work with a External Battery backup. there is nothing to monitor the thing. It should be built into the UPS, so that it monitors the mains supply, should it shut down

It should not need no drivers etc the UPS plugs into mains and the Comp into UPS. UPS monitors Mains for shut down and Auto switches if the power goes off. This allows for a Clean shut down. and depending on the quality of the UPS it can do it automatic

woodchip - the usb cable connection to my ups tells me battery status, etc. Agree with you, should not need drivers.
