Windows 7: Recovering from power shutdown

Recovering from power shutdown

Win 7 Pro 64bit. APC UPS using Powerchute software.

I've got a dedicated computer running video management software for an IP camera system. I have the computer bios and software configured so that when the house power goes off, and then returns, the computer will boot up and go directly into the video management software where it will restart camera monitoring. All works fine in this scenario.

Now the problem comes when I use my APC UPS. The Powerchute software automatically shuts the computer down after 3 min of power outage. When the power returns the computer boots up but stops at the "camera system locked" "switch user" screen.

This means I have to manually click icon to get to video management. Can anyone help me get past this screen on powerup so I can use my UPS and still get camera system back up automatically?

Thanks

I think most UPS actually put the computer into Hibernation Mode when there is a prolonged power outage. So you would need to see if you can change your Camera System to restart automatically from the hibernation mode, rather than from a boot up.

No provision for that. The camera software will start automatically when the Windows desktop appears.

So I guess the question really is how to get the computer to go to the desktop after awakening from hibernation?

It might be worth contacting APC & see if they can offer a solution.

Take a peak in the bios and see if their is a option for wake on hibernation.

I would be more concerned with the power going out, why is that happening ?

Is this a normal thing ?

Heck yes, where I live it's a very normal thing. We live in a fairly rural area so storms/ice cause issue with power lines.

I'll check bios on wake on hibernation.

What's the point of shutting down the computer after three minutes?
The UPS is there to power it during an outage, not to shut it down.
If all you want to do is shutdown during an outage, no UPS is required!

One of the purposes of a UPS is during a unexpected power loss one can save their work in progress and do a normal shut down using Windows 7.

One does not want to have a hours work in a project and loose it all because of a power loss.
