We never said they turned off the UPS, they just hooked the PC up in parrallel to it.   Im all for you having a Symetra on every PC. just more battery business for me.

Well, a UPS has three issues at my parent's house.  

 

1. My mother is of the age that everything must be turned off and unplugged before going to bed, because someone died in a house fire because their TV went up in flames while left on standby sometime in the 1950s.  It's taken me about 10 years to convince her she doesn't have to turn off the VCR then the PVR at night.  The computer is unplugged every night, including the ethernet.

 

2. They have terrible power, so a UPS would be beeping and whistling all the damned time, and my father has enough trouble sleeping.

 

3. They have a generator which they have to use quite often, and I'm not prepared to buy a UPS that can cope with the output of a cheap Chinese diesel generator.

 

I'd rather just replace a PC every 3 or 4 years that deal with a UPS.
