This Can (sort of) Be Done

Or, just leave something with reasonable amount of power consumption on the UPS port...

The computer shuts down, but the remaining attached device still draws power, eventually killing the UPS. As long as power doesn't come back on in the intervening time, this should get around the timer. Of course, if the unit had a timer, and the power came on in between it would STILL have the same issue.
