10.3: Take advantage of built-in UPS functionality
Authored by: varase on Feb 10, '04 06:22:46PM

I have an APC UPS, and all I get is the second Charged in the menu. (Actually, was wondering where that second "Charged" came from :-)

Nowhere can I see it affecting anything else (like in the Energy Saver control panel).

Mine is a APC Back-UPS ES 725 hooked up through a USB Ultra Hub 4 to a Powerbook G3 (2000). Eliminating the hub has no effect.

Just a guess here, but your Powerbook battery is one battery and your UPS is the second one maybe.????

10.3: Take advantage of built-in UPS functionality

Yep, that's exactly it. In fact I noticed this a while ago when I plugged my UPS into my iBook. I even submitted the hint, but it wasn't posted.

10.3: Take advantage of built-in UPS functionality

I first noticed this behavior after upgrading my TiBook (667 DVI) to 10.3. Energy saver actually allows me to configure the UPS's settings and gives me an estimated run time of 30 min off an APC 500.
