View Full Version : The UPS service is currently stopped...

So my power options properties says.

Could this be the reason why I keep having 1-second power cuts every hour? Or have they caused this? *looks suspicious*

Sorry :( I'm having so many problems lately!

Do you have a UPS? If you don't know what a UPS is, you'll probably not have one. Whether the UPS service is enabled or disabled only matters if one is connected, and even then, it should provide basic functionality (i.e. give power for a few minutes) to your computer, so I'd guess that this has nothing to do with the one-second-powercuts.

Ah ok, thankyou :)

The reason I thought it might have something to do with them is, each time the power cuts happened, the modem wouldn't come back on unless I unplugged it and plugged it back in, so I thought it might have been PC related :confused:

I'm dumb when it comes to this stuff :p

No. thanks for your info, RoseTyler. I would expect the UPS to automate that, apparently it doesn't yet.
I don't use one myself, so i just watch and listen. :)
