It could be, if you had an action combo for "When battery is activated"
- the battery would have "no action" chosen, but UPS could be "send
warning" - makes things a bit more cluttered.

Personally I'm of the opinion that UPS's are specialist pieces of
equipment and do not warrant their own profile - I only saw need for UPS
events "on UPS power : action" and "low UPS lower : action" and didn't
see the need for changing the policy of spinning the disk down, or
changing the LCD brightness (future plans...)

Heck my UPS only gives me about 2 minutes of server uptime, so I would
want "Shutdown" as my pretty much only request!

Thanks to everyone for all the feedback so far. Is the UI design better
in the screenshot to the existing design of version 0.0.3?

Thanks, Richard.
