You could also just flip off the breaker on the power controller, which
disconnects everything* in the PCU from the mains. Almost everything I keep
plugged in 24x7 (short of light fixtures and one or two unimportant peecees)
is also on a UPS.
* Except for the EMI filter, inlet power cable, plug from the wall, etc. :)
