leave projects open overnight

Without saving them first? You must have a decent UPS to be that confident that you won't lose power in the middle of the night.

But give an option so power users can control their machine if they so wish.

Because "power users" will never click to delay an update indefinitely, then forget to apply the update, and get hit by malware, right? Laugh | :laugh:

It's a no-win situation. If they give you the option to delay indefinitely, you end up getting infected and infecting others. If they give you the option to delay for a finite length of time, it's never going to be long enough for some people.

Yes, there's room for improvement. But turning updates off completely is still not a good idea. It's like solving the problem of worn brake-pads in your car by removing the brakes! Big Grin | :-D
