This has been a popular rant since Winten's inception some 5+ years ago. Indeed, I'm sure I've ranted about it a time or two as I've lost work (mostly unsaved notepads or sql server queries in SSMS) to the overnight restart. Sigh | :sigh: It was a lesson learned the hard way.

It's really sad Frown | :( that MS has made it so difficult to disable the unattended restart. I'd settle for a simple warning that a reboot was required...and always wait for a human response, at least giving the opportunity to save and close my open apps.

This reminds me of the short time that I spent with a new laptop running VS6 on Windows ME. Dead | X| It crashed so often that I got used to hitting the save shortcut frequently while coding. The cure for that catastrophe was Win2K which I used until Win7 came out. I still consider Win7 to be the pinnacle. Smile | :)
