I've been having trouble getting my APC CS500 with USB connection recognized by my G5 iMac running Tiger. Originally, I was trying to use the APC PowerChute software. Lately, I've come to the understanding that PowerChute should be removed as Tiger will handle the UPS thru the Energy Saver preference panel. After I removed PowerChute and restarted the iMac, I still had nothing in the Energy Saver panel. I called Apple support and was handed up to a "product specialist" who informed me that Tiger does NOT support a UPS on its own!!!
Either I'm confused, or the product specialist is misinformed and there's another problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We've been talking of Mac OS X Server and not the Client version. I don't know if Tiger Client can do this as well, but Server definitely does. I'd be disappointed if that was left out of the client though.

Dunno if it helps, but my APC Smart-UPS 750 XL just worked when I plugged it into a USB port of my new XServe G5 running 10.4.6. Finding the list box to select the UPS in the Energy Saver panel was the hard part...XServe G5, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
In my experience with Mac OS X Server and APC USVs they actually do restart correctly as soon as power is back and the UPS has recharged enough. May depend on your "Restart after Power Failure" setting in Energy Saver though.
