That's what profiles are for.  You make a profile for "on battery" and
"on UPS", where you'd generally only have one or the other.  The battery
profile would not include beeping, the UPS one would.

The mockups presented displayed an example of using the battery profile
and the options there-in showing a tab for UPS behavior.  That's what I
was getting at.  UPS should just be a profile like battery power.
