i want to change it so that the user has the option of waiting to reboot. as of now, it asks them if they want to reboot, yes or no, but the no is greyed out. i want them to click no then wait until the end of the day.

I believe you need to set the "allow non-administrators to receive update notifications" to enabled.

Your settings are exactly like mine, except for that one setting.

Yep, just like NJ posted, that "allow non-admins" translates to setting it to "1"...which you'll see in the "settings" tab of the GPO after you enable it.
