Cool suspending programs softly

i already posted this under "programming" forum but i realized this problem is extremely system dependent.

I usually run large simulations, and it happened sometimes power to go down
suddenly, i don't know why.
I have a UPS linked to my desktop (Debian Woody, 2.4.21), but i do not know how to suspend the simulation running while UPS keeps the pc on for a short time (10 minutes) before everything goes
down. I'd like to restart my programs just at the same point where they have been

Any suggestions welcome.

IIRC, posting the same thing twice is forbidden by the forums' rules.
Anyway, actually it is no that much system-dependant, but rather hardware dependant:
- which UPS system?
- which architecture (x86, PPC, ...)?
- which mainboard?
- which graphics card?

Please post any follow-up to the original thread. Thanks.
