Just a few things I found during a search. In case there of interest to you.
Windows 10 provides the means to stop automatic updates while it sleeps, it’s just not apparent. Go into Settings > Update & Security > Advanced Options, and all you will find are settings to delay and pause “feature” and “quality” updates.
A hibernating PC won’t wake to update. It’s powered off, as hibernate is a deeper version of sleep mode that saves the current system state to the local hard drive or SSD, not the memory. The only difference between this mode and fully shutting down your PC is that apps, programs, and files remain open after waking from hibernation.
Does Windows Update run in sleep mode?
They will not continue to download, but Windows will wake-up at the pre-determined update time to apply updates (usually 3am by default). This only works if the computer is asleep... if it is fully shut-down or in hibernate mode, it will not turn itself on.
