the UPS itself never completes. The UPS doesn't deactivate, so the
monitor I have plugged into it will totally drain the battery if power
fails and I'm not around to push the on-off button myself.

In brief, ensure that your UPS (by means of apcupsd configuration file)
is configured to run a complete shutdown at the desired time and not to
wait until the batteries are almost empty.
