    3am automated update for windows


    I have noticed, that some days nights, when i'm coding or making videos, anything like that, but the no. 1 thing I hate is at 3am restart after updates. Not bad, computer needs to restart, but why windows does not warn me about it? Usually around 3:10-> I'll have to watch when all of my unsaved work just pop off when windows decides to terminate all of the programs and restart. Any advice? (not about saving files, but about getting the computer to warn me about it?)
