I am running XP Pro and attempted to configure my APC UPS but the APM and UPS tabs do not show up in the Power options settings in control panel, :( any Ideas.

Thanks

Maybe....

Check to see if UPS is disabled in services.
Go Start>Control panel>Administrative tools>services...scroll down to Uninterruptable power supply and see if disabled. If it is, start it.

I also thought I saw something about this somewhere else...I'll do a search.

Already did that but the service won't start, I get "Error 2: The system could not find the specified file"

I have also noticed this problem (I am running an APC UPS). There is no need for this tab if you are running a program such as APC PowerChute since this program controls the shutdown times, and other operations when the power goes out.

Like I said, there is no need for this tab if you are running power management software such as PowerChute (which most APC UPS' use).

In W2000 and XP the "APM" tab will NOT appear in any system running ACPI. This only appears if loaded in "Standard PC" configuration.
