If the timeout is configurable, wouldn't be a reasonable option to
move the command away from the final seconds and use a larger timeout?

I mean, if the timeout is 5 minutes, the system has 5 minutes to
shut down everything. It will probably do everything in 1 minute
and poweroff. After additional 4 minutes the UPS will power down.
I suppose these 4 minutes of "no-load" are not an issue.
