Funny timing ... I bought two APC 750 units just over a year ago and use
them to keep my servers running in the rack.

A week or so ago, one of them started to complain (beeping wildly in the
night) and flashing it's lights etc ...

After emailing the APC support, they go through their usual spiel etc
... but in the end, just unplugging the unit and turning it off (also
shutting down all the servers fed by it) ... and plugging it back in,
did the trick ...
the electronics needed to be "reset" ... not sure what caused it yet,
but me thinks I'm putting the UPS monitoring software on one of the
boxes and trending it now ...

What a hassle ... especially when you're running a VM box behind it etc
... would have been nice to have dual supplies in it, but oh well ...
