Use a third-party APC UPS management tool for more control
Authored by: newooser on Jun 23, '10 08:51:46PM

I don't think this utility is ready for primetime. I installed it and decided to uninstall it. Dragged it to the trash, found the startup item, dragged that to the trash, emptied the trash, and rebooted. Now my UPS no longer shows up in Energy Saver under System Preferences!

It says in the documentation that a dummy kernel extension is installed to prevent OS X from recognizing the UPS, but darned if I can find it. Help, please!

Just had the same problem. You need to go to terminal and run sudo /sbin/apcupsd-uninstall. This will get rid of all the related code. Reboot and your APC should show up in energy saver again.
