I don't have any specific experience with your UPS, but from past
experience with other brands I'm assuming it would squirt some data out of
the serial/USB connector when power returns. Hence, you should be able to
configure your BIOS to 'wake on serial' or 'wake on USB'.
Otherwise, I'm sure someone else will provide some clues...
