    How do I block my computer from restarting for updates?


    Rarely when i get to my desk in the morning my computer has restarted. this has to stop to keep me from going insane.

    I figure there is a setting somewhere.

    If it happens because of a Windows update, then try setting Active Hours. (Settings, search for active hours). You should have a period of up to 18 hours available during which restarts due to updates should not occur.

    - could I check what you mean... do you mean this occasionally happens?

    There was an update this week requiring a restart.

    IF you check your Update History and the News thread here for each update to see if a restart was required, you can correlate the two.

    If you are experiencing random restarts more than once a month or so, and not correlated with any update, that's occurring for some other reason.

    In that case, check your Reliability History (Cortana search for Reli).
