I've recently purchased a new computer which came with software called CyberPower:  Panel Plus.  A tech took care of installing a battery next to my computer that he said would cover any power failure.  I found software in a 3.5 disk and installed it:  called CyberPower.  Now I have an icon on my taskbar (lower-right, next to time), which, when I click it, I get "UPS Communications Established."  Was my installation of this software necessary since a tech already told me the battery was installed, and exactly what does this software do for me?  When I click the icon, I get "PowerPanel Plus."  It's a panel--I think--that covers the setup and control of my CyberFower battery.  Bottomline, where can I optain info on the control and operation of this software and the battery?

That software is for configuring alerts and the shutdown procedure if power cuts out.  It also monitors your UPS battery.  Here's the site with manuals: http://www.cyberpowersystems.com/downloads.htm

Thing is a tech installed the battery.  Do I need this software which I installed out of curiosity?

Not really - it will probably make a loud noise if power fails, prompting you to immediately take action.  One benefit is that it might display the state of your batteries, but your unit may have external indicators for that.

According to the link it actually closes all open documents and in other ways preserves data in case of a power failure when battery capacity is almsot used and close down the PC properly before the power seizes totally
