Back UPS CS 500 - hibernation -> power on

This was originally posted on APC forums on 3/1/2016

Hi, I have UPS CS 500, on 10% of battery I have hibernation set in Power Chute. When there is no power, UPS switches to battery - OK, then when 10% value is reached it sends "hibernation signal" to Windows - OK, UPS then shuts itself down - probably OK

But what happens : when ac to UPS is restored it power itself on so does computer(Pc is set to power on after restore AC), - seems OK, but UPS is only on battery (orange light), PC is booting when UPS shut everythings down after few seconds. Then this happens again. (hibernation files are gone at this moment) and fortunately on third attempt UPS turn itself on with green light and everythings seems to be ok. But my PC cant boot up from hibernation, it has to boot normal.

Any idea someone ?

I've not tested turning off win+pc instead off hibernation yet.

Thank you.
