I have the ES 725 with a new battery. I also have Windows 8 with the Powerchute software 3.02
When the power is cut to the UPS, Powerchute immediately sends the PC into hibernation which is what I want. But once it finishes going into hibernation, it just reboots. For the test I did, I had unplugged the UPS. After it booted up (or perhaps it was during), I plugged the UPS back in. ONce the PC was booted, the UPS beeped a few times and the computer lost power and had a hard shutdown.
My question is why is the PC rebooting after going into hibernation? I mean it immediately reboots, there is no delay.
