Is there anyway to prevent WSUS forece restart when the deadline is finished? (2008 R2)

Hello,

I am issues with my developers, they keep telling me their computer is being auto-restarted at night.
i thought its power surges at start,
i have set the approval deadline for 30 days.

my goal that the update will be installed, but after being installed, it will nug the user about restarting the machine, however it will not restart the pc, even if the developer is not using it, therefore it happens - at night.
i tried set the option by GPO - but i have a feeling wsus is overwriting it.

If they don't want to disturb their thinking process perhaps they should hibernate their machine at the end of the day.

We can not do so, many of our machines are high preforemnce pcs which are used for long time calculations, Hench, it kills their calculation in the middle.

You cannot really do this. Installed updates without a restart makes the machine unstable.

Set the machines to not do updates at all, and then schedule updates when it is convenient.
