I suppose I'm not the only one who is frustrated by the way Windows 10 reboots after upgrades, "when nobody is using the computer".

Problem is, I use the computer. I just don't move the mouse.

Very frustrating to realize that you have "lost" a couple of days of computation just because Win10 decided to reboot at some point right before the weekend.

I read that there is nothing you can do about this except make changes in the registry / turn off updates altogether. Can that really be true?

Yes, there are ways to prevent automatic downloads, see there for example.

Corporate enviroment, WSUS is a good way to go since it provides both control and feedback about what updates are missing or failed. And you save a lot of GBs since updates are downloaded only once and distributed locally.

Thanks, Honza. That's good information to have, as long as you don't have the Home edition. This only works on the higher editions. Apparently MSFT thinks "home" users are too stupid to know when rebooting their own computer will cause problems. Of course, there's always the $99 upgrade to Win 10 Professional or the $0 upgrade to Linux. :)

(This is the reason why I did not upgrade any of my computers to Windows 10 during the year when it was free.)

I face the same problem on some of my boxes, and my workaround is the totally disable WU method, which rumour suggests they will remove this loophole with the next major update.

If the PCs are in a secure and single user environment, I guess a different workaround is to accept the reboots, and allow the PC to auto-login and start boinc automatically. That should only result in a shorter downtime, if nothing goes wrong. I believe there is also a service install option for boinc but with some GPU limitations.

Auto reboots you cannot disable should no way on God's Earth be acceptable. It's your PC & you should always be in control.

This is what I do so as to minimize downtime. One possible oversight is the GPU and where I have instructed MSI Afterburner to automatically load Profile #1 and where the fan is set to 65%. As an afterthought, I also have TeamViewer load automatically with each boot of Windows so that I will always have remote access to each machine as well.
