    I understand this to be a deprecated function.
    You can schedule this via the task scheduler, but you will almost certainly find the sound is curtailed, if indeed it has time to start playing.

    e.g. lengthy discussion here:

    the task scheduler is just to schedule a time for the reboot for the installation of the update or have I wrong about that?

    Pardon? No no no.. there are many many possible triggers for the task scheduler to do things, for example, on event id.

    Please take the time to read the article I posted where you will see examples - and possible solution at #31.

    I have been on that side before, but it didn't help me

    I give up. I have also tried with #34 on that side. But it does not work because a snapin module could not be used on this Windows 10 version.
    Is there any other way? Otherwise I throw out my computer with the Windows 10 home via the window, if I don't get it to work, thanks to Microsoft to make it so difficult!

    You could upgrade to Pro..

    You could play with scheduling a task at shutdown. I recall I tried that, but the sound was cut off while playing as the PC shut down.

    I would say MS's focus is on
    a. faster PCs
    b. faster shut down, log off
    so these features are not supported in the way they were in, say, Win 7- like many aspects of GUI customisation.

    For free? If you already have an applicable license you still have a chance, apparently.

    Having an SSD or a HDD is not relevant to that.
