It is conceivable that unmounting or other shutdown processes could 
take a long time, especially if network filesystems hang because an 
upstream network device lost power already.  

Also, the closer to actual system halt you can turn off the actual 
load, the better.  You won't have to worry that something didn't 
shutdown yet and still maximize the remaining battery life of the UPS.
