On a server with a UPS connected via USB, beginning with Server build 22463, the battery no longer shows up as "plugged in" even though it is, making Windows believe incorrectly that the server is running exclusively off battery power.

 

This results in scheduled tasks not running that have 'Start the task only if the computer is on AC power' option enabled (the default), screens not turning off on the "plugged in" time schedule, indexing slowness, and other problems I haven't noticed yet.

 

The connected UPS is an APC Back-UPS ES BE750BB.
