This may sound like a strange question, but is there a way to mute the

need a mobile desktop pc (very cheap). I need to setup a pc for my
little girl so that she has music, video, and visualisations while she's
in her cot- which is mobile and moved from room to room. So I don't want
to shutdown the pc when in transit, and I certainly don't want any
shrieks when I unplug the power...
Just crack open the UPS box and cut the wires to the loudspeaker :-)


I thought of that- but how do you do that with those little sealed
units? I'm looking at a small consumer unit around 500-700VA.

I've got a couple of cheap APC models (RS500). You can turn off all their alert signals using the apcupsd ( sysutils/apcupsd) program ( which is of course used for automatic shutdowns). The setting is stored in UPS memory (probably flash or EEPROM) and is retained. This is good actually, since one of these is pretty close to my bedroom ;)
