Automatic Update settings for Laptop Users

I'm trying to adjust the GPO policy setting to apply to laptop users.  I still want the laptops to receive the updates form our WSUS server.  What I want to happen is to have them install them on shutdown.  However I do not want them to have the updates installed and automatically rebooted if they miss the update date/time.  What I was thinking was created a GPO for the laptops OU and change the the setting for configure automatic updates to auto download and notify for install.  The date and time would have no effect if this options is selected I beleive.
