Hello Experts

I have a Windows 2008 server connected to a UPS.  Down the bottom right corner it says on battery power.

When i go to install SP2 on the server. i get the error Your computer is running on battery power.
Retry / Cancel.

Is there a way without removing the UPS to trick the server to thinking it's plugged into power.
