Windows 7: Automatic Updates

Automatic Updates

If "Password Required on Wake from LAN/Sleep" is set to yes, does this disable the automatic update installs that are set to update @ 3AM?

Thanks

Updates will run through the system account ONLY if you have the updates set to: automatically download AND install.

In the automatic configuration it simply uses the "system" account. It will not look to the admin account

Automatic Updating

If the PC is in sleep mode and requires password on wake, will the updates that are scheduled for 3AM wake up the PC without the password, do the install, and then the PC will go back to sleep mode in the predetermined time frame that is configured?

They should. The system account > your admin account... However, if you have your updates scheduled... it could be using your "admin" account to set the "schedule" which then might prompt for a password on wake... IF the machine even 'wakes' up.
