Users can't choose no when automatic updates clients asked for a reboot.

In my situation here at my work we have a windows 2000 active directory domain. On one of the member servers is SUS (software update services) installed. The client computers are updated via the automatic update client which get its settings trough a group policy. The clients update correct and the patches are installed but when it is finished installing patches it askes the client to reboot(I have configured this trough a group policy other wise the pc will reboot in 5 minutes after installing when a user is logged on) But the user can only choose yes, no is not on option its greyd out. My searches trough google and ms didn't found me an solution so any expert here know's how to solve it?

This is by design. Only administrators are allowed to postpone a reboot. You can disable only the automatic reboot after 5 minutes when a user is logged on using the "No automatic restart ..." policy.
You'll find a description of the different combinations of user rights and policy settings in this document at the page 57 to 60:
