OOPS!? It used to be that the manual for all the UPSs I've used said to
_not_ plug it into a surge suppressor, IIRC. Has that changed? It had
something to do with the wave form from the suppressor vs. the box's
monitoring circuitry.

I don't think that has anything to do with not shutting down though.
