Windows 10: Can an automatic reboot during non-active hours wake a sleeping device
Can an automatic reboot during non-active hours wake a sleeping device
The title is meant to be a question, but I ran out of characters.
Firstly, I'm running both a Windows 10 and a Linux Mint. As per the default settings, if I turn on my laptop and don't touch it, it boots up Linux, I have to interact to boot to Windows. I usually use Windows, though.
Yesterday, I left home around 4.30 PM, put my laptop to sleep (as the other option was update & shut down, and I didn't feel like doing that). I came home at about 4-5 AM and noticed my laptop was awake (albeit with the screen off), and Linux was up and running. Since nobody at home touched it, the only way this is possible if it woke up from sleep (with Windows running), reboot and automatically boot up Linux. But this still doesn't answer why would this happen.
So can an automatic reboot to install updates wake up a sleeping device, in order to reboot? If yes, is there any way I can disable it? And if it can't, does anyone have a guess as to why did this happen?
Thanks in advance!
Just wondering of anyone has seen this issue. I reinstalled my machine with fresh copy of Anniversary build. One issue that cropped up is when I suspend my machine, usually for extended periods, I can't log back on anymore. I would get the password...
Hi, with the anniversary upgrade, an active hours period of up to 12 hours is provided, after which, assuming one's PC is on, it will restart if so required for a Windows update.
I realised that programs such as 'Don't Sleep' which optionally...
I don't know if the anniversary update fixed it more, but I've heard people have had Windows 10, restart automatically and reboot after installing certain updates, like when they're in the middle of doing things. I can't say it's actually happened...
1) Does setting Windows Updates to "notify for download and notify for install" via GP edit also disable Device Driver automatic installation?
2) Or does disabling automatic device driver installation need to be configured separately?...
