Question about IBM eserver xSeries 205 8480
You should change to battery or switch to outlet power immediately to keep from losing work - what is causing this message
This is typically caused by software that manages an uninterrupable power supply (aka UPS). Simply put, this is a battery that the server plugs into to so the server can run for a short time when there is a power outage.
UPS devices frequently come with software to communicate with the server so it knows when it is on battery. When the server is notified that it is on battery it will provide warning messages like the one you described. Some will even pass the notice to all computers connected to the server to make sure no work is lost.
One of the most popular programs is APC PowerChute. I would look for this program or other programs that have the words "UPS" and/or "power" in their name to find the cause.
I hope this helps.
