APC UPS Driver and VirtualBox issue

Reported by: sickle Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.2.0 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows



My host is Windows 7 64 bits Ultimate Edition with latest service pack and hotfixes. My processor is an Intel i7 950 4 cores @ 3.07 Ghz. My board is the GigaByte X58A-UD3R. While two days, I had a big problem : VirtualBox GUI was no longer starting. After investigation, I discovered that it was due to my recent installation of PowerChute Personnal Edition v. 3.0.2. It contains a driver named "APC UPS". After I disabled it, VirtualBox was working. But I need this driver because Microsoft's default "HID UPS Battery" driver makes my computer sleep has soon as it is on the battery. I have review every power options, even made a reset, nothing can explain why Windows goes to sleep immediatly. But when using PowerChute, evering is fine, but VirtualBox is not working. I have tried to reactivate the driver after starting VirtualBox, but it hangs like VirtualBox when the driver is enabled. I hope I give you enough details.
