Description: Apcupsd can be used for controlling most APC UPSes. During a
           : power failure, apcupsd will inform the users about the power
           : failure and that a shutdown may occur.  If power is not restored,
           : a system shutdown will follow when the battery is exausted, a
           : timeout (seconds) expires, or the battery runtime expires based
           : on internal APC calculations determined by power consumption
           : rates.  If the power is restored before one of the above shutdown
           : conditions is met, apcupsd will inform users about this fact.
           : Some features depend on what UPS model you have (simple or smart).
