Missing native shutdown battery options in Windows
Back-UPS and Smart-UPS
Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2016, 2019
When viewing Power Options (go to Control Panel - Power Options) you may find that the configurable battery shutdown options are missing / not available. This may be caused by the HID driver (Human Interface Device) being updated from HID UPS to APC UPS or APC Battery BackUP.
If you are no longer using PowerChute software and want to utilize native battery options you may need to roll / revert the HID Driver to HID UPS.
The featured video explains how to revert / restore HID UPS Driver that will allow for the configuration of native battery shutdown option.
