Uninterruptible Power Supply

Default Description

Manages an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) connected to the computer.

Additional Information

I have not found a need for this. My APC UPS that connects via USB using PowerChute Personal Edition 2.0 does not need this service to run. However, some APC UPS install a totally different service for communication. Some UPS connected via serial port may require this service to be running or maybe certain laptops.
