Thanks to everyone who's been responding to this issue!

After removing the Power Management packages, we have not seen the box
reboot itself.  However, we had an issue yesterday where it was completely
powered off.  I am being told that when this happens, the UPS is in
(audible) alarm and must be clicked on.  My solution is to replace the UPS
with a larger one and hope that the power problems can wait to be solved
until I back....
