    Windows 10 starting computer late in the night

    My windows 10 system is starting up late in the night, probably to install updates and this is driving me insane as when I wake up in the morning , I realize that the system was automatically switched for several hours. In the Windows 10 anniversary update, I specifically set the active hours from 9PM to 9AM hoping that windows will believe that I use computer at those hours and would not turn on my system and update it but it did it again. This is insane. How do I tell windows to install updates as soon as it downloads them? Or atleast give me a popup which asks me when to install the update? I really don't like it when my system starts in the middle of the night. Could somebody please help ?
