Stop Install of updates during shutdown?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Martin Riddle, Aug 6, 2011.

  1. Is there a setting for this?

    Will a UPS force a shutdown with out update?

    I had a failure that appears to be from this. UPS was not connected via
    data cable, and ran out of juice before the updates finished.

    Managed to restore to an earlier restore point to solve the problem.


    Cheers

  2. Depends on the UPS software, but the easy answer is to use a simple command
    line to initiate the shutdown.

    shutdown -t 0 -s

    will start the shutdown in zero seconds and will fully shutdown and not
    restart. Tell your UPS software to use that instead of what it's currently
    doing, and you should be OK. You can also add a "-f" switch to it to force a
    shutdown if something is holding it up. But that does have the potential to
    lose data. Of course, running out of electrons will tend to lose data as
    well. ;)
