Assuming that Squeaking = Beeping
Could be overloaded; bad battery not holding a charge; some other internal fault.

What APC UPS model is this?
If you disconnect all devices from the UPS, turn the UPS off, then turn it on (still with nothing connected to it), does it still beep/squeak?  If it does, it has some internal problem.  If it doesn't, try plugging just the computer into it and repeating.  Beep?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi

It is very abnormal to hear a non stop squeaking from such a device, if it have a self diagnostic tool use it to see if it points out a problem, in any case I suggest you to distrust it and bring it to a service for repair, if it is still in warranty period just do not think a minute more about it, bring it to service now.

Bye

Unplugged everything.....squeaking continued but I noticed on the front panel a button that said "Press and hold to mute." I muted it.....and squeaking has stopped. Surely this hasn't fixed the problem BUT.....unit is long out of warranty and for now the noise has subsided.

I wouldn't use that unit at all if it's in some kind of fault indication condition.
