Odd ... if that happens, you ask your UPS provider to pay for the damage. All my UPS's are rated for lightning strikes.
The only use my power-off buttons see are to power the machine back on when I have multi-hour blackouts (I'm not going to buy enough UPS backup for 7 machines for 4 hours - I just bought enough to last for 10-20 minutes, which is longer than 99% of the problems I see around here ... by about 10-20 minutes - most power problems here are brownouts or 0.5s blackouts).
