helo. im a newbie and im not really sure if i found the right place to ask this. is there a way to shut off and then power up a UPS? i understand there are softwares which can hibernate and power up a PC at preschedule times. what i want is to shut off the UPS itself, not just the PC. i do not want my UPS to run 24/7 for practical reasons. besides, i need to turn off the other hardwares (routers, switches, etc) attached to the UPS. thank you in advance.

Nope, wrong forum. This is for requests for forumz features.

Post in one of the hardware sections - most likely cases & power supplies.

But to answer your question:

Blunt answer: What's wrong with the power switch? :mrgreen:

Real answer: That would have to be built into the UPS by the UPS mfg. If the UPS mfg. designed that ability, then they would have the software to control that. I see how it could shut off automatically, but I don't see how a computer (that has no power since the UPS is off) could instruct the UPS to turn itself back on. You would have to use a separate device - one of those simple home timers you use to turn your lights on/off when you're not home... But that begets another problem.

So, I doubt its possible, but contact the UPS vendor (Tripp-Lite, APC, etc.) directly to see if they can help.
