restarting without update installation
This is much less important than the question above (for win10) about
the laptop internet.
I guess my eyes are failing because I clicked on the line for ng win8
instead of win10
So for you win8 folks, here's another copy. :-)

I'm using win10 and usually restart to update pretty quickly, but this
time when it asked for now, set a time, or Later, twice I chose later.
If the win10 box asking when I want to restart showed up when I wasn't
at the computer and I never clicked on any of the choices, would it
restart right then?
This morning, I saw that the computer had restarted. It must have,
because no programs were open. Maybe there was a short power failure.
How did it manager to restart last night without installing them? Is
that because some essential part of installation occurs during normal
shutdown and I must have had a crash? Or could it be that it never
did restart, but somehow all the programs closed?
Event Viewer should have an entry about an unplanned shutdown (or words
to that effect) if it was a crash.
I went through every section twice and didn't see anything like that.
There were no tasks in the task bar. That's how I concluded all the
programs had stopped. And the desktop was showing completely.
How could the programs stop by themselves, especially all of them?
How can it make an entry in a log if there is a power failure? Does it
do it when it restarts?
I did see in the event viewer an hour before I stopped using it, but I
don't see how this would matter:
Windows Update started downloading an update.
Installation Started: Windows has started installing the following
Installation Successful: Windows successfully installed the following
