    I think it might also help to deactivate another option:

    It often happened to me that although I hibernated my laptop Windows 10 rebooted itself automaticaly at night. I hate it when I think that the computer is powered down and it does things anyway closing all my applications.

    Ditto that! For me that is the very definition of an UNSTABLE operating system. If my computer can't run unattended, and if my computer operating system takes precedence over what I, the user, am trying to do what is the point!

    It seems that it even cannot hibernate unattended. I find it's a dengerous practice that microsoft enforces by default. What if something happened at night when I sleep and it runs just by itself? I guess it's just a matter of time until some evil people misuse this mechanism to hack into corporate machines... anyway, I see there is still another option to disable it the Allow wake times:

    It's quite scarry that hibernation isn't like power off any more. But even more worse is that microsoft adds new functions to the system and not mentioning them anywhere. If you don't stuble upon one of them by accident you'll never find out how your system is cheating on you. PC owners are lucky, they could pull the plug but laptop owners? Should they remove the battery...? and even that is not always possible with the internal battery in new lenovo notebooks.

    You can find any policy setting using the GRoup Policy Settings Reference from Microsoft:
    Download Group Policy Settings Reference for Windows and Windows Server from Official Microsoft Download Center

    The registry setting for the no auto-restart is below:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
    "NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000001

    I have this policy ENABLED and my PC continues to restart automatically after update. Microsoft just ignores this option.

    Hello woffko,

    If you haven't already, see if setting Choose how updates are installed to Notify to schedule restart may help.

    Hello hannelius,

    Yes, that will work as well, but can be a bit more work. Here's a tutorial for it to help.
