My UPS shuts itself off after powering down the computer connected to it. How to stop this?

Its a BR1350MS (Back UPS 1350VA Sine Wave).

 

Right now I have PowerChute installed and it will power the system down (well, hibernate) according to its settings, but then it will power the entire UPS off a few seconds after.

 

I'd like the UPS to remain on and keep powering all connected devices until the usual time (about two minutes of battery remaining when it will shut off).

How can I do this?

If you do not want the UPS to power off you should uninstall PowerChute. Then configured Windows Power Option to turn the OS off after UPS has switched to battery.

 

See Schneider Electric FAQ FA159653 Configuring Microsoft Vista, Windows 7, 8, & 10, Windows 2008, 2012, 2016, 2019 to safely shutdown without using APC's PowerChute software.
