I had to uninstall this app because it was using 97% of my CPU. If you have PowerChute installed and your Mac slows down considerably, open Activity Monitor and check how much of your CPU PowerChute is using. In the Apple support forums people are saying it's incompatible with Snow Leopard and APC hasn't addressed it yet. Too bad. APC's hardware is great, but their software for the Mac is lacking.

- First the "Download now" button doesn't take you to the the software at all, but rather to APC extra confusing website. - Second, as far as I can tell, Mac OSX doesn't exist as a platform choice for downloading Powerchute upgrades. So this has no place on Macupdate in the first place. - Third the previous versions I did use were just better than using nothing at all. The product is good. But the software that comes with it quite lacking in features. - Fourth, I can't stand hardware manufacturers that have a "free" versions of the soft needed, but charge extra for a "pro" version. If the hardware is so great, hardware makers have all advantage to package software with it that will make the product shine, as opposed to another "batteries not included" ploy, in this case, the batteries are included, but "decent software not included" should be displayed on the package.

APC obviously does not care about Apple because it stopped development of this software a long time ago. I use the built in OSX UPS system pref panel instead. APC's app pales in comparison to the Windows version.

Just stick with Apple's in-built support via Energy Saver. This software is so lacking compared to the PC version, it is a joke!

I just downloaded this update but have not installed it. I am running 1.3.2 on Panther without problem. I have Tiger but have not yet upgraded. The Powerchute documentation shows that in addition to fixes for Xserve, this update adds official Tiger support.

Version 1.3.2 is available from APC's website. It has been around since March, but apparently, it was not submitted to MU.

Unfortunatley, their hardware is only as good as their software will allow it to be. Currently their is no software for APC products which work on Apple's latest client OS (10.3 Panther). Powerchute freezes the OS whenever their is a power outage, not allowing you to backup or shutdown gracefully. This defeats the puprose of have a UPS/Backup system in the first place, and renders the use of APC equipment on OS X 10.3 useless. I would not recommended using APC equipment with a Macintosh, until APC supports their current products with software which matches a Mac's current OS. I have opened 3 support tickets regading this with APC, and even asked for a refund on equipment which does not work. To date I have not been told how to get a refund (request was ingored in support ticket), and they best they could come up with before declare my support tickets "solved" was "we are working on an update". Roll on 2004. Don't buy APC products if you have a Panther.

Does not work with 10.3 or 10.3.1. It intermittantley freezed the OS, defaulting the purpose of having a power-on time for backing up.

The uninstaller is on the original CD, or in the .dmg file (disk image) that you downloaded. It is not installed on your system.

Works perfectly for me. Who needs bells & whistles. Tell me it's connected, tell me it's working, and work. It does these things perfectly.

after xserver update to 10.24, system will hang waiting for powerchute daemon. only way out is a ups-power-cycle. If you want to restart/reboot your computer, it will hang. The remove powerchute script supplied does not solve the problem.
