I have been really enjoying this Windows 10 Auto Restart “Feature” so thoughtfully provided by a company that specializes in server products and developer tools. I find it most convenient to have all my running tests abruptly terminated, my database server shut down and my web services taken offline such that other process I had running now fail. Besides that being a great testing tool to ensure your OTHER services handle failure well.
I trust you can read through that above paragraph and detect a very thick sense of sarcasm. I have scoured the web for months looking for a solution and stumbled upon a hint. However, even with this hint it still took some time to find the referenced settings. BUT, found the settings I have and now to share with you.
There used to be an option to “Download updates and notify me to Install” and that is oddly missing in Windows 10. Lest anyone think I’m against patching the OS let me assure you that is NOT the case. I am, however, very against any equipment being unpredictable both hardware and software. At the top of the list of design rules, is be predictable.
So, here is a step by step guide.
I have some sample screenshots below to help clarify.
