Set Powerchute PE to shut down rather than hibernate

Set Powerchute PE to shut down rather than hibernate

Hello all,

I have a Lenovo Thinksystem ST 250 server that unfortunately does not support hibernation in it's firmware. (Already discussed this with the Lenovo support people... hibernation is not supperted in the BIOS / firmware)

I've hooked up a UPS to protect the server, but when I test this the PowerChute Personal Edition software is telling me that hibernation is not supported on the attached machine (which is off course true)


I've browsed around the PCPE user interface (version i'm using is 3.1.0) but can't find any setting to have the system shut down rather than hibernate in case of a power failure.

Is there an option to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance....

Re: Set Powerchute PE to shut down rather than hibernate



With hibernation disable PowerChute will just shut the OS down. You do not need to make any change within PowerChute. 


What OS is running on the server?
