We do have stabiliser and UPS. Suddenly there will be a lightning
strike somewhere (or some strong, very-quick fluctuation), and the PC
will just reboot. Even if the PC is behind a stabiliser and a UPS,
this happens many times. I have seen this behaviour with many brands
of UPS. Thats why I am worried about this problem.
The problem is that the power does not cut over to the UPS fast enough.
You need a surge suppressor as well - most high quality commercial grade
/ isp grade power bars / power strips will have these.
Do you think it is a better idea to say "yes" when it asks "do you
want to check the fs.." while rebooting ?
depends - use a journalling fs like ext3 and you should have less
problems wrt lost data from power cuts.
