Updates are under my control and I rarely need to reboot.
Under 10?

I booted into my Windows 10 testbed and I could not find any place for personal preferences in Updating like the Check and advise me but don't download or install like in Windows 7.

And even more annoying, when I went to Shutdown and clicked to get the shutdown choices, usually Shutdown / Restart / Log Off I found I could only Update and Shutdown / Update and Restart or Log Off

And when I selected the first since it was bedtime (for me and the computer!) I had to wait an appreciable and annoying period of time while it sat there doing its Updating Computer don't turn off ....

If you've found a way to avoid this please share.

This was on my desktop but I'm planning to upgrade my tablet as soon as I image the hard drive .....

I have not been back to see if this only happens if there is an update but I can imagine on a portable device having to wait live on line eating data from my Download Amount instead of allowing me to wait until I was home and plugged into the Internet direct would be more than annoying!
