Introduction
This documentation applies to all computers running one of these operating systems: Microsoft
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / 2003 storage server. These computers can be either Home PCs, servers,
NAS servers … In the user documentation we will use « computer » as a generic term.
Using Integrated Power Management you have no software to install.

UPS Compatibility
EATON has tested the behavior of Windows Integrated Power Management with the following UPSs:
           Ellipse ASR 600/750/1000/1500
           Protection Center
           Pulsar Evolution
           Pulsar Extreme C / Pulsar EX RT
For other USB enabled EATON models, the behavior should be the same.

NAS Servers particular case
The Power Management Feature is ideally suited for Network Attached Storage servers.

NAS manufacturers recommend:
   to avoid installing additional software on these servers running Microsoft Windows Storage Server
   2003 Appliance Edition.
   to use UPSs to power the NAS server.

For these very reasons, USB Microsoft Integrated Power Management is the solution of choice.

EATON has successfully tested this behavior with Iomega NAS 400r Series - 640GB running Microsoft
Windows Storage Server 2003 Appliance Edition.

UPS Detection

When plugging the EATON to the computer, the new device is automatically displayed in the device
manager as a “HID UPS Battery”.




When a utility failure event occurs, a systray battery icon is displayed in the taskbar.




You can access the Microsoft generic driver settings through:
“Start -> Settings -> Control -> Power Options”.

The following window is displayed:

For example, you can configure the critical battery thresholds in the “Alarms” tab

By setting alarm battery levels and actions in the “Alarm” tab, you are able to define the shutdown of
your computer during a utility failure. i.e. shutdown when the battery charge level passes under the
selected threshold. This threshold will be defined to ensure enough autonomy duration in order to
completely and properly shutdown your computer.




Known Limitations In The Shutdown Sequence:
    Message notifications are not displayed
    Computer “automatic startup” function is not implemented in this generic driver.
    After the shutdown caused by a long utility failure and when utility is back, the computer does not
    restart automatically.
    Should you need additional features, you can install “Personal Solution Pac” on your computer
