I take it that you do not have a UPS at present?
I just purchased one (Brand APC) and it connects to my PC via usb cable,it
will automatically shutdown the PC after so many minutes that you select or
when the battery reaches a certain % of time remaining,Very easy to
configure.
I'm sure that other brands are the same.
