Light version of PowerSaveUPS App
PowerSaveUPS is Macintosh only scriptable software for controlling UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems with USB (such as APC) Two shutdown thresholds are specified - Soft (Graceful) shutdown, and Hard (Ungraceful) shutdown which is instigated as a last resort. At Soft shutdown time, any scripts in the 'PowerSaveUPS Scripts' folder are executed. Typically these would be scripts that save any open documents as a time stamped 'PowerSave BU', followed by a 'graceful' shutdown script.
Now has its own icon. Added various menu items. New 'Dark Star' theme.

Needs Update or Take Down
Both this and the $50 primary version do not function under Catalina. No GUI displays. The last "update" was a minor one two years ago and the last revision was 4 years ago. The copyright date on the main app only extends thru 2016. Clearly the dev has lost interest in supporting it. It might be a nice gesture to not have unwitting customers pay $50 only to then have to go thru the hassle of demanding a refund. I'm glad I investigated before making that mistake.
Downloaded installed then opened the application. No window, nothing. tried every menuitem, only the about showed anything.
I have two different APC UPS units, neither worked. Also tried two different Macs. The built-in engergy saver preferences on either Mac sees both UPS units, but from what I can tell the app doesn’t work.
Lite does nothing
Not sure why the Lite version exists as it does nothing. Just as the other user has reported.
The help site does not mention Lite at all, so no idea what should be happening.
at about 50USD, I’d want to make sure it works with my UPS before purchasing.
The screen shot sure look great - too bad we can’t see them on our machines.
