Making UPS make the computer hibernate.

This was originally posted on APC forums on 7/6/2011


I have an APC Smart-UPS 1000. I have been testing the UPS and I'm not able to make the computer hibernate when I simulate a power failure and I can't make the computer power back on when I plug the UPS back in. When I pull the plug on the UPS the computer runs on battery power for a while but then completely shuts down. I just want the computer to go into hibernation when the power fails. I have been reading about some settings in Windows power management but my UPS does not appear in the power management window. I am running Windows XP.

Have you checked if hibernate is enabled on your machine? Using the Agent web interface go to Protected System>Shutdown Settings>OS Shutdown Type. It should give the the options on how you would like it to be done.

Ok and as for the restart upon power returning that is all configured through the BIOS?

If it is the computer that you want to turn on after power is restored to the UPS and its outlet has power, the BIOS needs to be configured. This is how our customers would do it.

Dear

If you want to ask your PC (windows XP) go to hibernate mode by Power Chute Business Edtion

1. Make sure you enable hibernate mode available in your PC. (Go to Power Option for setup).
Make sure your PCB agent service are running (go to services to check)
The user id current must be not "limitted user" or the command of PCBE won't be accepted.
Disable power schematic "Standby mode" due to it's make PCBE service turn off.

2. Create the Batch file

It's will active the command "powercfg -h on" and let PC go to hibernate mode.

Note " with the PCBE Delux" you can select the Shutdown type hibernate in the Shutdown option

3. Config Power Chute run with this command file as the application shutdown.

What kind of software are you using PowerChute Business or the Native UPS software of Microsoft? If you would like your PC to restart once power is restored you will need to make some changes on your PCs BIOS settings.

Did you install all three components of PowerChute Business Edition?

With regards to the BIOS, maybe this APC Knowledgebase Article can help you out - [Computer will not automatically reboot after UPS has shutdown and restarted|http://nam-en.apc.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1003/kw/bios/session/L3RpbWUvMTMwOTk2MjU5OS9zaWQvSldRc...]
