*IF* and _only_ if you buy one of the high-priced "full-time" UPS systems.
The typical 'hobbiest'/'small office' UPS is a "standby" system - the
battery power kicks in only if the line power fails _completely_.
A good UPS with voltage regulation isn't that expensive.
That said, one rarely if ever plugs peripherals like monitors
or printers into them. Their main purpose is to save data
(by not fscking up the file system on the HDD). Plugging
a monitor and/or printer into the UPS will reduce the
time it can power the computer while on the battery.
OBWW: I'm making a small shelf (out of wood) for a little
DVD player in my daughter's room. I'm worried about stray
electrical/magnetic fields harming the finish, and the
Flexner book (Bible, O'Deen) says nothing about how shellac
can protect against this. Would lining the shelf with lead be
the best option?

the problem with this is that over time the lead will become
radioactive, posing a threat to your daughter's health. Sure, it might
take 10,000 years to reach a measureable level, but why take chances?
