I did a search and there is not topic for this anywhere? Only 3 post? Anyways. If I buy a surge protector, one of the ones that can self power for a bit if the power goes out can it also safely send halt commands to linux to shutdown? The ones I looked at all say they have software for WinXP etc. What about for Linux. I have Slackware 8 with kernel 2.2.19, if this makes a difference.
