This was originally posted on APC forums on 3/23/2013


A very important question please :

Regarding BR900GI ,  An External Hard Driveconnected to an iMac as a TIME MACHINE purpose onlyWith personal Mains power connection  :

Mac Basics: Time Machine

The HD is not in use when the iMac is in  sleep / OFF modes .

When the iMac returns to work / turns ON again , the HD should receive a mains / battery power .

Where should i connect the power cord to the UPS ?

Should i connect the HD power cable to the Surge Protected outlets, controlled by the Master outlet ( No 3 ) ? ( As shown in the att Pic )

Thanks.

Ronen

Yes, you're correct. Your Mac should be in the master outlet and anything you want to turn on or be powered up when the mac is on should go in the controlled by master outlets. This is generally for things like a printer, speakers, etc and an external hard drive fits that purpose. When the master outlet is not drawing any power or your Mac is off, the power to the controlled by master outlets will not be available.
