Today, for the um, I dunno, 10th time in 2 months, I moved my mouse only to find out my computer had updated itself without asking for a restart time AGAIN. Sometimes I can avoid an update for a while by "X"-ing out the "schedule time for restart" box. Other times, it doesn't even give me the option to schedule the update. When my computer automatically downloads, installs and restarts my computer, it force-closes any virtual machines I have running.
It doesn't save the states, it doesn't turn them off... it does the equivalent of a hard shutdown.
It is very very annoying! Wastes the 30 minutes that I actually have on my computer having to restart the VM and verify everything is still good.
It also got me to start wondering... how many of these hard shutdowns is it going to take to break my VM?
Technically, it doesn't get written to disk in the standard sense of the word, but I understand that the files can still get corrupted.
That's all my rant for now!
