WSUS - Configuring "No Auto Restart with logged on Clients"

Hi  All,

I'm setting up WSUS on a Win Svr 2008 domain and am having problems with configuring WSUS so that it does not reboot the client computer if the user is logged on.   I'm local admin on my computer plus domain admin and after the updates hit it doesn't allow me to even postpone the restart.  It starts the count down and reboots on its own.  Now, my users are not local admin on their computers.  I'm just surprised that since I'm admin it doesn't allow me  to postpone.  Anyway,  I need to have it configured so that it doesn't automatically restart on
users when they are logged in.   I don't know what I'm missing.  Please Advise.  Thanks for your assistance.   Here is what I have enabled.

With deadlines on a update that requires a restart, it wont matter what settings are set<<< it will reboot.
