Centos 6 repeat unexpected shutdown

A person came into my office yesterday apparently looking for a spare power outlet, past my line surge protection, and plugged a vacuum cleaner into one of the boards supplying my UPS and server.

For some reason he blow the UPS, I expect from spikes appearing on the line suddenly, and the server shut down. I took the UPS out and reconnected the server cable direct to the board. I need it up and running.

While it boots and runs OK, varying from a few seconds to close to a minute, suddenly a notification from KDE write daemon pops up with System Shutdown Begin, then the server shuts down.

What might be happening here, and how do I fix it?

Thanks in anticipation,

Did you configure some sort of UPS interface in the system? .. could be shutting down due to lack of communication with the UPS. It's also possible you lost a fan and the system is shutting down due to exceeding the temp threshold.
