Is it possible to prevent Windows 7 from rebooting without any interaction from the user? Or even better, only if the use is using a full screen application?
More details: My wife uses her home windows 7 laptop, and remote desktop (mstsc) fullscreen to log into a work system. Several times, the host system (laptop) has rebooted in the middle of a session, presumably because the "windows will reboot in 10 minutes" dialogue was hidden behind the remote session?
Is it possible to either prevent the laptop from rebooting when a fullscreen app is in use, or get the dialogue to overlay the mstsc session? (bearing in mind that mstsc has captured the mouse and keyboard.
Only as a last resort would we want to disable automatic windows updates completely.
