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!

In 10.2 I used there software and it worked great, not many options but it worked. When apple added support for UPS's in system preferences I quit using there software, it doesn't save anything anyway just shuts it down, wow big whoop!

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.
