> Why bother?

Maybe for the reason described in the first paragraph of colinng's hint? I've used apcupsd precisely for that purpose.

> The built-in software (Energy Saver) is good enough. Never needed anything beyond that.

Good (enough) for you.

> If you wanted, I'm sure AppleScript and/or Automator could be added for more needs.

Do you a specific method to suggest for disabling APC UPS beeps instead of simply a think-you-know-better response?

Thanks for writing up this hint, colinng. Hopefully a few folks will appreciate it.
