    I should clarify ... Windows does a scan for updates and FINDS an IMPORTANT update.

    I've NOT had a problem with MoUsoCoreWorker.exe for the last week (since post #30 above) and I except that it may occur again on patch Tuesday; which for me is really patch Wednesday.

    We'll see what happens over the next few days.....
    I suspect that MoUsoCoreWorker.exe would rear it's ugly sleep blocking self next time M$ has a preview update it wanted to sneak onto my PC - but now that I've paused Windows Updates as I described in my last few posts, that should not happen to my PCs.

    Yes, without using 3rd party apps to block Windows updates: it's either
    1. powercfg override
    or
    2. Windows Update settings -> Advanced options, and pause updates for the maximum 35 days.
    3. Using CMD script and VBScript to control Windows Update
    The scripts are not third-party apps. I have never used your options 1 and 2.

    Well if I can get the job done without a 3rd party script or app, that's my preferred route.

    You seem wary of third-party stuff.

    Correct, especially when it's unnecessary for me.

    I do have a ton of third-party apps I use.

    My scripts use Windows built-in CMD and VBScript commands, which are not third-party stuff.

    Any script I didn't write is a third-party script to me. Enuf said.

    People can choose the method they want to use now.

    4. Set your internet connection to 'metered' connection, then the issue doesn't occur.

    I have opted to do the 2nd.
    After I put the powercfg override into a batchfile, it's a 3rd party batchfile. As I didn't write it myself, and I only write stuff when I absolutely need to.

    Pausing updates doesn't work and neither does requestsoverride.

    I've noticed that pausing updates doesn't work for me either. After the PC has been awake for an hour or so, "powercfg /requests" eventually stops outputting that MoUsoCoreWorker will prevent sleep. I guess Microsoft changed something.
