Use of a UPS for power and proper shut down not working


I have my compute stick powered via a OpenUPS2 by Mini-box. I use these on all of my small PC's and they work quite well. The operating system sees them as a HID UPS battery. The problem that I currently have is that when I connected it to my Compute Stick, the battery icon shows up but does not update unless I click on it. why is it not updating like all of the others do? Oh and I made the mistake of upgrading to Windows 10 on my Stick.

Hello Hypertec,

Thank you for joining the Intel communities.

This is something that Intel has not tested with this unit so we cannot guarantee full functionality with it.

I can suggest updating the BIOS to the latest version to see if that can help you any better, you can download the latest BIOS version here: Download BIOS Update [FCBYT10H.86A]

Please see F7 BIOS Update Instructions for Intel® Compute Stick

You can also wait for another contributor to give you some advices how you can set up the unit with this component, maybe someone else has done something similar and they can share with us how they solved this problem.

Best wishes,
