Actually, I see you are talking about a ups: that probably is a broadcast with "wall".

Why WOULDN'T you want a broadcast if you are about to be shut down???

In any event, this doesn't have much to do with anything but whatever you are using for ups software. Some of it has its own scripting capability where you can control what it does, some doesn't. You probably don't know what you have, right?

[This] reminds me of a quotation from somebody that, whenever he tried to explain the logical structure of a programming language to a programmer, it was like a cat trying to explain to a fish what it feels like to be wet. (Saul Gorn)
