if the power goes out, ok, the monitors go dark but I don't lose anything.


Since the laptop has its own battery, get a UPS, and hook only the monitors to it. You could probably go for quite a while.

At home, my desktop has its own UPS, and I have a second one driving just the extra monitors and network gear...by splitting the load, I can keep going for at least at hour. Something really bad's gotta happen if this isn't enough for most situations.
