Maybe a dumb suggestion but ....
How about putting a wi-fi on the computer, shutting the monitor off when 
not needed and monitoring the computer from a remote location. I already 
do this. I don't connect the monitor to the backup power supply...I have 
wi-fi in the house but still use solid cable to the network upstairs .. 
waiting for the computer downstairs to "die".
