    I use the APC Powerchute with a d-schmidt controller. It works very well for me. I believe I told it I had a back-ups 400 or something. I don't remember it taking much effort to get working though.

    The only problem I have with my laptop attempt was the sound... The internal sound was SOOOO BAD... Perhaps an external USB sound adapter or something? I haven't seen anything like that though.

    Woah, are you sure it doesn't flip the image VERTICALLY? Usually that switch is for mounting it upside down, rather than reflected.
