Hibernate multiple computers with UPS?

  1. Hello, Long time no speak Paladins. :)

    I'm considering on getting a new UPS for my PCs, specifically the CyberPower CP1350AVRL, either locally or newegg. I'd be running two computers on this unit and for those who uses CyberPower's UPSs, is there a way to manage two computers with it, considering it has both a USB and serial port?

    Assuming it does not, Anyone have any ideas how I could emulate this, or have the PC with the datalink to the UPS shutdown the other? Perhaps using an event to invoke the shutdown command to close a remote computer would be the most raw way of doing it, but I'd love to know if there is a more elegant way.

    unfortunately that script is to enable hibernation, opposed to actually telling the system to shutdown/hibernate/sleep.

    Incidentally, I know someone looking for a way to turn off hibernation enmasse, so your link is still rather helpful. =)
