7/16/2011 6:03 AM (in response to Jonathan) Just a housewife here, using two iMacs in our home. A OSX Tiger and OSX Leopard.
We purchased an APC BE550G UPS because we have frequent power outages in our neighborhood. The included software CD is not compatible with our OS's. I am certainly not a techie and wish to inquire about the advantages of downloading the proper CD software. Will our UPS complete the task of maintaining power to our computers during the 30 seconds we are without power during an outage, without installing the CD software? We have a whole-house generator which restores power in less than a minute of an outage. Unfortunately the technical specifications that were listed for the BE550G on Amazon did not state anything about OS compatability issues.

We require a UPS for seamless power transitions because prior experience with power outages dealt our OS systems quite a blow. 7/17/2011 4:05 AM (in response to Jeanne) Hi Jeanne, Unfortunately with your Macintosh Operating System you could only use the built-in Native UPS software. I believe it is called the Energy Saver, with this software you can set it up to shutdown your computer once it has detected that the UPS is running on battery.

Normally, for customers who are using Microsoft based Operating System we do encourage them to utilize the APC PowerChute Personal Edition. This is the software that works with our BackUPS. PCPE software gives you the capability to see what kind of power events happened, adjust the sensitivity and transfer voltages, ability to set the Master Control features on UPSs that supports this.
