It wouldn't really matter if we are talking just a popup. I've seen somewhere else that was tried and the popup came up again later. If you close it after it tells you it is scheduling it, I believe it's scheduled since you need an explicit no to opt out at that point.
Life would only get serious if the upgrade was running. If you shutdown your computer while it was updating you would pretty much "brick" your machine and have to reinstall the OS and programs from scratch, and hopefully restore you data from backup. However, I don't think that's possible. I haven't seen or heard of an upgrade running with nothing saying so on the screen. Just the upgrade running while people were away or sleeping. What's more likely to happen is you walk in and see the upgrade countdown screen on your monitor. If you freak and shutoff the power then yea, you're hosed.
I'm just trying to see if there is any way possible for a computer to get upgraded to Win 10 without the users knowledge.

"But automatic installs, if this is indeed what has happened, push things too far. Switching to Windows 10 is too significant and too error-prone for this to be acceptable. Changing the behavior of the X button is borderline malicious. This is the kind of stunt that you would expect of a spyware installer, not an operating system from a company that should know better. Windows 10, or at least its installer, has become little better than malware, and that's something that Microsoft needs to very publicly apologize for and fix."

How MSFT's tricky new Windows 10 pop-up deceives you into upgrading
Cryptic message pops-up: msft virtual scsi mounted to F:\ A few minutes ago, a message balloon popped-up in the notification area formerly known as the system tray that said "msft virtual scsi mounted to F:", as near as I can remember. It went away after a few seconds, and did not leave a message in the...
