Had something similar. Small company, "server room" was a couple of racks in a small room with no emergency light. Power cut happened, cue frantic beeping from our Potato Clock, and a mad scramble (using phones as torches) to try and plug a monitor in to perform orderly shutdowns on the servers before UPS drained completely.
