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".
