If your computer's internal power supply can't cope with losing just one
cycle of mains, that's a serious shortcoming it its design.  Switchmode
supplies should have better line regulation than that, the mains is far
from perfect and coping with that should be a part of standard design.

(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
