Does the UPS service exist with Windows XP Home? Is there a tab for it under the power properties? Thx

Thanks. Unfortunately even though it supports UPS I was planning on using it with a laptop and that's a no-go. The onboard power management features of a laptop cause Windows to remove the UPS tab. So I can't configure it. And w/o a serial port on the laptop I can't use APC's PowerChute software to get around that either.

Ah well. Anyone wanna buy a UPS? :)
