UPS that works well with Tiger

Message #1 - Posted 2006/08/12 - rsina

Any recommendations on an affordable (750 VA or so) that works perfectly well on tiger (i.e. can shot that mac down smoothly)?

Thanks.

Tiger 10.4.x natively supports the APC Back UPS 1150 I bought at Sam's Club for $149.00. No need to install the Powerchute software. It pops right up in the Energy Saver preference panel. I have tested it and it shuts down my dual 2.5 Power Mac ok. Tiger supports UPS's without additional software.

Thanks very much for this. I knew the Mac could shut itself down, bu couldn't figure out how.

A very helpful posting, and very much appreciated.
