10.3: Take advantage of built-in UPS functionality
Authored by: Mr. Spleen on Mar 04, '04 03:13:26AM

I have a Power Mac G4 (Digital Audio). I also have a Back-UPS ES 725BB, and I never connected the USB cable or installed PowerChute. I tried this hint, and it works as advertised. The battery icon in the menu bar is a vertical rectangle (instead of the horizontally-oriented cylindrical battery icon that portables have). It has a little lightning bolt through it. For time, it says "unknown until full" even though the percent says "100%". I would go ahead and unplug it from the wall, but I can't reach the plug since it's inaccessible behind my desk.
