Oh! I have never had that happen but power failures were a problem. My initial respnse was to call my son -- who at that time (pre-security system) checked every day or so -- to go over and turn the computer back on. Once the computer had booted up, I was able to log in remotely with LogMeIn
and reset everything. Since then, however, I have replaced the battery backup with one that shuts down the computer properly before the battery is drained and then restarts the computer upon the return of exterior power -- one of the higher-end models found at Small/Medium Business Applications
with "cold start" capabilities. And, of course, I still have my "back up" -- calling the son or grandson.
I believe that covers most of the bases. However, anything can (and probably will) happen so who knows what I've missed.
