    Interesting that you don't see the svchost request. Maybe this is because it is a VM?????
    Oh, I didn't look in the Event log.
    I didn't know they aren't listed in Update History anymore.
    That's a good change imho, I never liked all the entries for those updates...filled update history with useless clutter.

    Yea, I don't know why I don't get a svchost request if everyone else does...

    Just looked in update history again. Made a liar out of me! There are defn updates showing there! Don't know why they weren't there a couple of days ago. Must be going mad!

    Seems we are getting 1 per day, with 2 on the 4th.

    I just ran a manual update from the Windows Defender window and that one shows in Windows Update History.
    But still no svchost request.

    Weird re the svchost request. Maybe it appeared and was cancelled as it should have been?????

    I don't have a request override for it (or anything) on this OS.
    If it disappeared it did it automatically and real quick after I did the manual update.
    I think I'm going to do another clean install and see what happens...

    I did see a request for wmpnetwk earlier on this OS, and that disappeared by itself sometime later.
    Sleep is working on this OS.

    After a clean install I finally was able to get a svchost request.
    In Windows Update settings, when I clicked on "Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows", that re-triggered a check that showed Updates available.
    Then I checked requests, and i had the svchost request.

    Auto Sleep stopped working.
    I entered 3 different request overrides to fix this and none of them worked, to fix auto sleep.

    At this point I had not clicked check for updates, and manually install any available...I normally do this on a clean install, but not for this test...

    The WD definitions updated automatically, but 2 other updates were still pending (not installed).
    Later I looked at Windows Update and the 2 other updates that were pending had disappeared, and had not been installed.

    Waited a day for Windows Update to automatically run again.
    It installed the WD definitions update and showed the 2 other updates pending as before.
    I now had 3 svchost requests and auto sleep still didn't work.

    I manually installed the 2 other updates that did not install automatically.
    Rebooted.
    Checked requests, and all the svchost requests were gone.
    Auto Sleep now works!

    I THINK this is a "Tech Preview" anomaly, and (hopefully) won't affect the final release...
    With Tech Preview changing the default setting "Install updates automatically..." is disabled, presumably so everyone using WTP gets updated...
    For me the auto update didn't install all the updates available...
    I normally use "check for updates, but let me choose"...that's not possible in WTP.

    Well, it seems as if yours is doing just what mine is i.e. adding svchost requests and not clearing them thus stopping sleeping. The reboot clears them and all is well again until the next update, manual or auto.

    So, would a workaround be to tell Windows not to automatically install updates; to let us install them ourselves?

    Edit: Whoops, I didn't read closely enough . . . manual or auto. Sigh . . .

    You can't opt out of auto update either!

    Anyway, I am just hopeful that MS will one day look at this and fix it before RTM.
