  1. Active Hours


    This is part 3 of my "Windows 10 Readiness Questions" thing.

    Windows doesn't restart outside of Active Hours when you're using the computer, but what if I'm away from it for even an hour?

    :)

  2. Disable Active hours?

    Hello Daniel,

    If you wish to add more hours or to have an option to turn off the Active Hours, then the feature is currently unavailable on Windows phone. It is best if you can send a suggestion to make the features available using the
    Feedback Hub app. To send a suggestion on your Windows phone, you can follow the steps provided below:

    • Go to All Apps, search for the Feedback
      Hub app.
    • Open the menu icon at the top left side.
    • Select Feedback, then at the top right side, tap the
      add
      button (+).
    • Select Suggestionand fill up the box with the details needed.
    • Select the right category and then Submit.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask the community.

  3. Windows Update preparing/running during active hours

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand it can be frustrating when your devices get into such situation, but we will try to get it sorted for you. Thank you for the detail information provided on the post.

    To have a clarity on the issue, we would like to know some information.

    • What is the make and model of the PC?
    • What is Windows 10 version and built currently installed?
    • Did you setup any task in task scheduler?
    • Please help us with the screenshot of the system information page of the PC. Press
      Windows + R key from the keyboard and type msinfo32 and
      follow the steps mentioned in the screenshot
      posted by Shawn ‘Cmdr’ Keene on Oct 2, 2015 to post the screenshot.

    However, we would like you to refer the
    Configure active hour section in this Manage device restarts after updates
    article as suggested below.

    1. Please refer the Configuring active hours with Group Policy section,
      if you are running Windows 10 Pro or higher version.
    2. Please refer the Configuring active hours through Registry
      section, if you are running Windows 10 Home.

    Disclaimer: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious
    problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    Active Hours

    active hours, useless apps etc

    Thanks for that Martmcd

    It was a hypothetical question. I have not suffered any financial loss.

    It's just that Active Hours is, in my opinion, a retrograde step. I much prefer the Win 7 approach to updates, where we had the choice of when to install them.

    My computer is unattended for some 17 hours per day. Which is why I am caught unawares.) Also some users are active 24/7, MS should take this into account.

    Since the last update, I have started to set active hours from 0800 to 2000 then at around 1100 reset active hours to 1100 to 2300, rather tedious but effective.

    Thanks for your reply.
