Can I get Manual Windows 8 Updates to install on Reboot?

Since I've had the common problem of Windows 8 Updates hanging at around the 12% figure on my new Laptop, I have resorted to Manual Updating which has been successful. Once the Update is downloaded, then you're invited to restart to install the Update, but if you don't do this then the Update fails to 'automatically' install following a shutdown and reboot of the system. Once you have rebooted, then you have to restart again in order to install the Update surely causing more wear and tear on the system!!

Is there a way of configuring the system to install the Manual Update on a shutdown/reboot so that you don't have to restart again?
