We use a UPS, for one thing I seem to remember in the A&H manual it’s suggested because there is a risk (though I suspect fairly small) the surface will get trashed (it’s running Linux and might need to flush I/O buffers to storage) and would need to be sent back for a factory re-set, but also we use a circuit breaker that trips and stays off if there is a power loss. One of the worst for any electronic equipment is the power going on/off in quick succession – lots of nasty spikes, dips etc. would punish any kit. So when we loose power (not often, but it happens) the kit stays switched off because of the circuit breaker and we can wait until the power is stable before powering things up again properly.
