Suppressing pop-up to reboot after Windows updates

Since I've started pushing out updates via WSUS, I now have a user or two crying that they are now receiving pop-ups that are prompting them to restart their laptops. I know, it's an outrage!!!

Is there a part of the WSUS GPO selection, or another GPO that will allow me to suppress this pop-up. Apart from forcing a reboot thru GPO. Thanks.

You can schedule the updates/reboots to take place during non-working hours. The users can also select remind in up to 4 hours.

Install and reboot during the middle of the night once a week, seems the best way to go.
