I would keep my power supply on a separate line then anything else, now when you say "power supply" i think your talking about surge surpressors or extension cords.

Its best to put the PSU connection on a separate surge surpressor/extnsions cord because it prevents the PSU from getting any effects of other devices drawing power from the same source.

Now if your really concerned about your computer you can buy an A/C power conditioner, though expensice it filters the AC current going in the power supply.
