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. :)
