What file system are you using now?
Sorry! I'm using ext3. Thought it's journal would be more efficient
than it has been.
A UPS may be a better solution. There are packages that allow the
system to monitor the UPS and prior to the UPS exhausting the
battery can run a standard shutdown on the system for you. APC has
such software and I believe there is a third party package as well.
No doubt about that but, as I mentioned before, I'm unable to use this
solution right now.
