Back-UPS® Pro Installation and Operation
To conserve electricity, configure the Back-UPS to recognize a Master device, such as a desktop
computer or an A/V receiver, and Controlled peripheral devices, such as a printer, speakers, or a scanner.
When the Master device goes into Sleep or Standby mode, or is switched OFF, the Controlled device(s)
will be switched off as well, saving electricity.

Back-UPS will beep to indicate that the feature is enabled. The leaf icon on the display will illuminate.
Disable the Power-Saving function. Press and hold MUTE and DISPLAY simultaneously for two seconds. The

may be necessary to adjust the threshold at which the Master outlet signals the Controlled outlets to shut down.
1. Ensure a master device is connected to the Master outlet. Put that device into Sleep or Standby mode, or turn it
DISPLAY and MUTE simultaneously and hold for six seconds, until the leaf icon flashes three times and the
Back-UPS beeps three times.
