Thank you for the answer,

yes... stop the processes using the NAS makes more sense.
I told about the unmount because one time i tried to unmount the 
disconnected NAS, and the command umount /path/to/nas took a very long 
time to unmount.
I know: buy an UPS it could be a good idea... meanwhile, i need a 
"patch" to manage these events (electrical mains black outs, as well as 
sudden wireless connection loss, etc.).

Thank you
