    Question about overriding MoUSOCoreWorker Process


    Hi. By now many of us know how to override the MoUSOCoreWorker Process by the powercfg /requestsoverride process MoUsoCoreWorker.exe execution command so the computer will sleep normally. What I can't find is if doing that causes any issues with Windows Updates downloads or anything pertaining to Windows Updates.. Any replies are much appreciated.

    Update Session Orchestrator and MoUsoCoreWorker.exe replaced wuauclt.exe (Windows Update AutoUpdate Client) in September of 2020. Both check for Windows Updates.
    Others discovered that this executable was waking their computer from sleep, which is normal behavior if you have Windows Updates configured to update when your computer is not in use.

    There are numerous ways to disable MoUsoCoreWorker.exe, but that's not recommended. Instead, check our similar articles below to find ways to modify when and how Windows Updates runs or change your active hours in Start > Settings Update & security. Click on Change active hours on the right.

    If you find that MoUsoCoreWorker.exe is using a lot of memory or processor, you should check for Windows Updates or try rebooting.

    Well, my override is still in place (and working), but several updates just downloaded and installed without issue. I am leaving the override in.
