Question Newbie UPS help

I am a newbie and I just got a Sun Ultra 5, and want an UPS. I have been looking at the different models, but I do not know which brand has software that is compatable with Solaris 2.8 for automatic shutdown. I have looked at the power setup options in Solaris, but there doesn't seem to be any options for auto shutdown. If anyone can help get me started, it would be much appreciated. ThanksSmilie
