Use a third-party APC UPS management tool for more control
Authored by: jelockwood on Mar 19, '10 03:57:03AM

APC make good UPSs but their Mac software stinks (to put it mildly).

While their wilful neglect of Macs in terms of software provision might have been justified the many years ago when the Mac market was in serious decline, the massive increase in Mac share in more recent years has led other more sensible companies to resume providing decent Mac support. Even Microsoft have improved their Mac support :)

People might also be interested in the open-source NUTS project (Network Ups ToolS), see http://www.networkupstools.org/ and http://boxster.ghz.cc/projects/nut/wiki/NutOnMacOSX this will work with other makes as well as APC.
