    Log in data mandatory outside the Active hours?


    My system is set to skip the login screen and has the Active hours set to 08:00~17:00.

    Yesterday I checked for updates and there were only Windows Defender definition updates.

    I used the PC from 10:00 until around 18:00 and there was no warning about Windows updates.

    So I was surprised today morning because the login screen asked for my PIN or password.

    Then I remembered it had happened once a few weeks ago and I noticed that both times I turned the PC on before 8:00. And every time I turn it on after 8:00 it never asks me for log in data.

    Is there something that forces users to enter log in data, even if they set Windows to skip, when logging in outside the Active hours?

    :)

    windows 10 is NOT restarting after a windows update even if is outside of active hours.

    I start windows updates on my system and leave for dinner, expecting the updates to be finished and the system re-booted when i return.

    when i return at 7:30 pm (outside of active hours) i find the update status screen with a status of "awaiting restart"

    "your device is scheduled to restart outside of active hours. (Active hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm)"

    If i click on "restart now" everything completes normally.

    I have a screen print showing this information along with the system clock showing that the current time is outside of active hours (is it possible to post that screen print here?)

    This is NOT a new problem and actually happens on more than one PC, but i am getting tired of going though the extra steps and waiting for completion of this process that should have already finished while i was away from my PC.

    Why won't my system reboot outside of active hours after updates are complete?

    Windows 10 pro

    version 1709

    os build 16299.334

    Active hours are 8am to 5pm.

  3. 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.
