    Well it is back on several of my devices. I've taken to running Windows Update reset.

    Something strange going on.

    When you run powercfg /requests


    you see this exe running which is tied to Windows Updates.


    MoUSOCoreWorker.exe


    Saw this in the fall but is was "Net Stop wuauserv", restart and it was done. This was on my laptop, a clients laptop and a client desktop.


    The adobe flash removal KB failed on several of my machines and left this worker running. Also see it after .net framework fails which can happen randomly. Have run sfc /scannow on all systems, no issues


    Also got it on two devices after KB 4589212 failed which is strange as it only recently showed up and it is dated 2021-01

    Hello Ken ,

    My simple solution to this MS MoUSOCoreWorker headache is to pause updates for 35 days from [WU -> Advanced options] , because I don't want M$$$ sliding Preview updates onto my PC like they've been doing nor do I want to deal with this MoUSOCoreWorker preventing sleep crap - pausing updates kills both issues with one action.

    I make an full MR backup monthly, then unpause WU to get the monthly updates, then again pause updates for 35 days - not a big deal since I'm in WU anyway looking at what got updated. I prefer doing this vs the powercfg override or third party updating blocking method others prefer to use.

    Do whatever works best for you. /cheers

    UPDATE:
    With updates paused, the PC still gets MS Defender AV signature updates and anti-malware updates - so not a security risk IMHO.

    While possible I really don't think I can manage this having five windows machines and over 100 clients.


    I may have to resort to something like this but can you imagine all the users out there that don't even know where to start.


    If I notice one not sleeping I just bang in the command and restart. My wife now knows how to do this on her laptop.

    Okay, didn't realize you were an IT guy, so definitely not a practical solution for you unless you automate it somehow. How do your IT buddies handle this then?

    Sure enough, I ran Windows Update reset on my client facing laptop, restarted, checked for updates and KB 4589212 for Jan popped up. ( and we all know that Windows is constantly checking for updates. ) This laptop has pro and feature updates are delayed 100 days and patch Tuesday 7 days.



    Very strange.



    My IT buddies live here, it is where I found the Net Stop solution when one of my clients started complaining. Always learning from this forum.

    @Caledon Ken,

    Yes, we're all de facto IT buddies here.

    I should have said the IT buddies with 10's or more of PCs to manage like you. Not sure how many of those high volume buddies are here

    Sadly I don't have those buddies, did 10 years ago when I worked. Wow time goes fast.


    None of my clients sign support contracts so it is strictly call me when you need me. Most wait until their computers are on their knees.


    Last week I got a call to reconnect milking machines to network, that would have been different. Before I could get there owner called the company that installed the robots. Maybe next time.

    I'm fully retired, the only hands-on support I do these days is once in a blue moon for family and friends.

    So to keep my hand in I have collected a variety of laptops of varing vintage and specs. I think I may have over done it a little bit Eight at last count (six W10, two on W7 for nostalgia sake).

    Pleas don't ask me to count the VMs though - I haven't got enough fingers!
