This is very interesting reading indeed. First of all, my PC is a Dell Dimension desktop, not a laptop, so I don't have the luxury of a built-in battery backup.   If there's anything else that you guys need to know about my PC, tell me and I'll post it.

Regarding the use of a UPS on an ungrounded (2-wire) AC line, a few years ago I was told that a properly grounded electrical circuit is required for a UPS to detect the power-failure in a timely manner.  Am I now to understand that really isn't true? Undecided

For more years than I care to remember, frame ground is a reference point in every PC.  When you don't have a good ground, the "Reference" point is floating and at that point anything can happen.

Most UPS's will function when not even plugged into the wall at all.
So what does earth ground have to do with it, at that point?

Use a UPS or don't use one.  It's strictly up to you.

But over the years, I've had to deal with too many weird problems on systems with poor grounds, to ever run my own system that way.

Cool
