    "Active hours can be set between 1 and 12 hours"?!

    Those who are criticizing posters about being unhappy with Windows features seem to be misrepresenting a poster's intent. It appears that posters are simply expressing a belief that Microsoft should have designed
    the feature better--not that they do not understand that they are stuck with the software they bought and agreed to.

    How could Active Hours be designed better?

    • What's the current design? It looks like Microsoft believes it might take up to 12 hours to accomplish an update, so requests that the user specify a period including 12 hour of non-Active Use.

      .
    • But the biggest fear appears to be that the restart might happen during truly important work, not that the update might possibly still be going on when the user returns to work. Such would be unfortunate but could be worked around, especially if it is
      only a possibility. I have endured some long updates: "Do not turn off the power ..." but it has never taken 12 hours. I am a Win10-Home user.

      .
    • A Better Design: That Active Hours only govern when the system shall not be restarted. In this case, a period as long as 23 hours would be allowable. If it takes 12 hours to update, so be it--but there is
      no way to prevent that as long as it truly takes MS 12 hours (sometimes). This seems to give Microsoft as much flexibility and the user as much protection as the current design. For example, my desired Active Hours are 10am-3am (17 hours). If I set my AH
      to 4am-3am (23 hours) I get the same protection as now; and Microsoft can restart at 3am and take 12 hours if needed.

      .
    • But if Microsoft, even today, not do its restart at any arbitrary time within the non-Active Hours, but only at the beginning of it, it would have the same effect as the proposal, and its actions would be very
      predictable. Since users are complaining about unexpected restarts, it appears that Microsoft must be choosing an arbitrary point outside of Active Hours. Is it?
