My Back UPS Pro 350 USB works really well under Win 2K as I can check the
battery level in the Power Control Panel, and also trigger alarms when power
is off and battery goes under certain levels.
The only time it did not start working right after reboot was because of
another USB device that was not recognized yet by W2K.
Sean, do you have anything else plugged to the USB bus at the same time?
