Lock the LCD to stay visible?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 4/21/2021


Newbie question: I’m on my second day with an APC Model: BN1500M2.

Is it possible to keep the LCD operating and visible continuously?

{I learned quick not to goof with the power button to make it work: it also shuts off everything if I’m not careful!}.

From the manual. That should have been included with the UPS. If you didn't get one. It is available on the APC site. In the UPS's web page.

The display interface can be configured to be continuously illuminated, or to save
energy, it can be configured to darken after a period of inactivity.
1. Full Time Mode: Press and hold DISPLAY for two seconds. The display will
illuminate and the Back-UPS will beep to confirm the Full Time mode.
2. Power Saving Mode: Press and hold DISPLAY for two seconds. The display will
darken and the Back-UPS will beep to confirm the Power Saving mode. While in
Power Saving Mode, the display will illuminate if a button is pressed, it then
darkens after 60 seconds of no activity.
