How to setup UPS with Cisco 1941 Router to do soft shutdown?

Hello,

I have a Cisco 1941 router attached to a simple UPS.  It works fine if the power only goes out for a little while, but when the power goes out for hours, the UPS fails and my router goes down "hard".  

Is there a way to make a UPS communicate with my Cisco 1941 router and turn it off in the event of a long power outage?  I'm willing to buy UPS hardware if necessary.

Thanks,
Jason

There is no graceful shutdown for a Cisco router as such.  To turn it off you do just that.

That's unfortunate.  I believe you, but I feel like I better keep the question open long enough to see if anyone else has any ideas or work-arounds.

Thanks, Craig.  You've actually answered my next question, which is why is it that when my router goes down it reverts back to old settings?  Must be because the configuration changes aren't being saved.  Thanks!
