Power Adaptor and UPS modes in Energy Saver
Authored by: G5from128k on Jul 29, '04 08:40:52PM

Running System -> Library -> CoreServices -> Menu Extras was all it took to add the menu bar item and activate the UPS features in the Energy Saver panel. Unlocking the panel and selecting the "Settings for" pulldown let me configure separate energy saver settings for "Power Adaptor" and "UPS" modes. A help popup around the "Shutdown when only X minutes..." checkbox even tells me that I can add a special UPS-related shutdown script in /usr/libexec/ups-shutdown.

Thank you for the very nice Hint!

UPS shutdown script
Authored by: sjk on Jul 30, '04 09:26:25PM

The /usr/libexec/upsshutdown script is really intended for OS X Server. And there's a typo on the logger line; ".ermerg" should be ".emerg".
