A few tips on picking a UPS for your Mac
Authored by: imageworx on Oct 13, '05 08:51:01AM

You can think whatever you want. But this has happened (and yes, its extreme situation). But if you have no means of powering off a machine that is running off UPS battery, (whether builtin or software controlled) and the power is not restored before the battery discharges, you will damage the device(s).

That is why its been great that you can connect to a UPS and OS X has a builtin power manager. Maybe not as feature-rich as the APC Windows client, but still better than nothing.

Maybe you can test this "exaggeration" for us and leave your most important non-laptop CPU on battery for a few days (hours?) why its running some open programs. Then get back that nothing happened?
