Windows 10: Win update “Notify to schedule restart" missing after recent update?
Where do you download Don't Sleep? Does it have an official site?
I saw it in Dont Sleep - Free download and software reviews - CNET Download.com but there is a review that says it has a virus.
You use a search engine. Better not to use CNET sometimes as they package things in their own installer with 'extras'.
MajorGeeks is reputable.

Update info. Don't sleep does not prevent my Windows 10 Home 64 bit x64 from the auto update and restart. My PC restarted by itself when I have many programs opened and don't sleep opened, it auto restarted during the period that I lock screen and not touching my PC.
A forced restart can override programs such as Don't sleep, if that's what MS is using.

Last November, or maybe even October, Windows Update stopped notifying me about updates, so I've been checking them manually whenever ESET notifies me about them. The 1511 upgrade didn't correct the situation, and neither did resetting Windows. Is...
After the recent 'Anniversary Update', I noticed that several things have either gone missing, or need to be re-set.
The first thing I noticed was that the icon for "Search", (the little magnifying glass icon), is missing from my taskbar....
I used to be able to right-click on the "Recent" icon on the start menu and see an option to clear the recent files list. Now it's gone. The "Recent" icon is still there and still functions properly and lists recently opened files, but the "Clear"...

I'm currently deciding whether to upgrade to Windows 10 or not from Windows 8.1. The main thing that will prevent me from upgrading is whether I can regain some form of control over automatic restarts after automatic windows updates.
