I left my computer doing some overnight tasks last night, but at 3:00 windows update started (as schedueled, but no longer, I've disabled it) and rebooted my machine.

I see that the reboot was called by winlogon.exe in my system logs and I want to know if there is any way to temporarily disable the system's ability to reboot using the normal shutdown procedure (of course if I hit the reset button on the case it would still reboot)...

does anyone know of something like this? I also found an article about windows update shutting down people's machines at http://blogs.msdn.co.../15/257877.aspx
