Does anyone here have any "feel" for the "Battery disconnected" and
"Battery reattached" log entries?
The rebooting came as a result of me turning off modems, router,
external drives, monitor, cordless phone and finally, the computer,
trying to locate a quiet but annoying "chirp". The "chirps" stopped
when I tilted the UPS to look at the front panel. As you can see, log
entries stopped at as suddenly as they started.

into recycling...

Ah, yes, *that* chirp. Try doing a self-test on the battery. Oh, and I
don't suppose the replace battery light's on? Check the manual - there's
some trick to pushing in one of the buttons to tell it to shut up.

Given the complaint was that the battery was disconnected and that it
stopped when you moved the UPS, I would check the wires connections to
the battery. Pop open the battery compartment and make sure the
connectors are tight.

Had this happen with my APC UPS late January this year. After contacting APC
support and working through their troubleshooting procedures, I ended up with a
new UPS since mine was still under warranty.

Cheers,
Dave
