    Ah, but has it had an update through?
    How should I know!? If it auto-updates, it won't tell me it did, will it?

    If it will tell me it updated, then I guess it hasn't had any updates.

    You can look in Windows Update / View update history.
    I got 2 updates today for WTP 32 Bit and 3 updates for WTP 64 Bit.
    If you have MS Office you may get more today.

    Well, that did not last long, heh. My computer is no longer sleeping. I THINK it is due to Homegroup sharing this time tho as it stopped sleeping once I had all of the computers synced and sharing libraries. Back to work troubleshooting AGAIN.

    I've got to get a new HD so I can do clean bare metal install and test that way
    I'm testing Win 10 TP in a VM and "some things work differently..."
    Most, if not all the issues I've seen, seem to be answered by using a VM...

    Heh...
    I just checked and had a Pending Update waiting for a reboot.
    I normally have Win alert me for available updates, but can't do that in WTP.
    I got NO notification of the pending update or required reboot.

    I don't know if this is normal for those using "Auto Update" ???

    I manually control if and when updates are installed ...
    I also don't re-boot very often, I use sleep and hibernate.

    Same here. I rebooted to get rid of the request and saw an update occur. Afraid auto update is what it says.

    But, this is part of taking up the Preview offer. They have to have everyone on the same release. Imagine the frustration of heaps of people complaining about something that had already been fixed.

    OK, I just checked Windows Update and it says I have four important and one optional.

    View update history: No updates have been installed.

    Updates are being installed and she's restarting. Then I'll go see what the optional update is.

    Very strange that y'all got updates and I didn't.

    I agree, that is strange unless you installed/re-installed withing the last day.
    Are you using built in Windows Defender or did you install some other Anti Virus program ?
    If you are using Windows Defender, you should get at least one Windows Update per day for a new WD definitions file...
