Computer Not Restarting Outside Active Hours (Build 1809)

Q: Computer Not Restarting Outside Active Hours (Build 1809)

This will take some explaining:

Six months ago, July 2019, I would get two Action Center notifications (set to be notified) "Your Computer is set to restart outside Active Hours. The problem is that the Restarts are not happening. Back in July, I forced the update, ran Windows Update Troubleshooter and all was well with proper restarts for the past six months.

Flash forward last night, get the Action Center notification. See the lamination. Go to bed. Get up the next morning. Action Center is still laminating. (Computer was never automatically restarted overnight.)

Some questions:

1.) How long can I keep the updates in the query before the computer sends up a notification that something is wrong?

2.) I want to learn more about what conditions or time intervals are involved when Active Hours are over that determines WHEN Windows 10 restarts when updates are in the query.

3.) Yesterday, I got a notice about "Rate How Easy it is to Customize Windows 10" in Action Center. Submitted the rating. Today, I got the exact same survey.

4.) With the recent release of Microsoft Edge Chromium I wonder if Microsoft's server notifications are mssed up someway.

5.) Has anyone else had this issue?

6.) Did updating to 1903 improve these conditions?

Preferred Solution: Computer Not Restarting Outside Active Hours (Build 1809)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


This has also been reported in the Windows 10 Feedback Hub as being wonky. For the last two Monthly Windows Updates:

I have my Focus Assist (Active Hours) set from 7am-11pm and the "Notify me when computer needs to restart" box checked in Windows Update settings.

What has happened these past two updates is this:

1.) I get an Action Center luminated notice that the computer needs to restart outside of Active Hours about 7PM.

2.) Active Hours end, and the next morning I find out that Windows Update still has the updates scheduled to be installed in the query.

3.) I have found out that if you do anything to the computer or change time to install updates, the restart "Tick" will be missed and could carry over into the next day.

4.) A user reported that he has had repeated Action Center notices for the past 3 DAYS about needing to restart.

5.) I myself will sometimes click OK and than several hours later the updates have left the query and a check of Update History shows that they were installed.

6.) You can't click the Power Button on the Task Bar Windows icon to just shutdown or restart when an update is in the query. without installing the update.

7.) For this last Wednesday, I did a CTL+ALT+ Delete to do a Restart without updating and than when the desktop came back, Windows Update History showed that the Updates that Action Center had been yapping about needing a restart on July 12th, 2019, where actually installed on July 1oth.

Found the answer to what I was seeking! If you don't want things like Cortona to remember your searches, or your Microsoft Account activities, do the following:

1.) In the search box type "Privacy" (No quotes)
2.) In The General Settings go to Privacy Settings
3.) Go to Activity History, and there are a lot of things you can clear and uncheck about the information and searches on your computer. Very helpful!

Built in February, computer been running fine until it restarted last week.  For the past 2 days, it's been doing it 1-3 times a day now.
Event viewer shows no errors leading up to restart so my only conclusion is something is wrong with the power supply.
If this is true, how do i test because this system uses dual 850w EVGA PSUs linked together.
Voltages for PSU are good i believe.
12v- <1% deviation
5v- <2% deviation
3.3v- =3% deviation

Sounds like you might want to do a clean install.

Probably a good idea to invest in a BackUPS (uninterruptible power supply) for the future. Even if the computer is on and sitting idle, a power outage can corrupt system files.

Hope that helps.

I don't know if the anniversary update fixed it more, but I've heard people have had Windows 10, restart automatically and reboot after installing certain updates, like when they're in the middle of doing things. I can't say it's actually happened to me. Not that I'm aware of, anyway.
Either way, I think it's pretty stupid how you can only have a 12 hour window for your computer being active. It also says, that it let's you know when your computer needs restarting anyway. So, if that's the case, what's the point in having active hours set, so your computer doesn't restart when you don't want to?
The only thing I'm concerned about, is if I'm in the middle of gaming or something, and it happens and my pc restarts. Or is that now not possible, as it only happens if your computer is idle? I thought I heard somewhere it happened to someone whilst gaming. ****ing stupid idea if you ask me. Especially, when I can't choose to turn off automatic updates because I'm only using the 'Home' edition.
Not even sure how it works. Like if I have my 'active hours' set from 8am to 8pm, what happens after 8pm? Surely gaming too, your computer knows you aren't exactly 'idle'!

A:Active Hours/Update?

I am on home and have mine set similar to you, 9am to 9pm here

From my experience it has never restarted while in the middle of something, if it wants a restart it always schedules it for around 3am or updates itself when i do a shutdown/startup

Hi, with the anniversary upgrade, an active hours period of up to 12 hours is provided, after which, assuming one's PC is on, it will restart if so required for a Windows update.

I realised that programs such as 'Don't Sleep' which optionally block shutdown, hibernate, sleep, may actually be useful in overcoming this restriction.

Would this be likely to work or would an update related restart overcome that? Are there any other options?

I'll try it when I can.

Greetings All,

I have had really bad frustrations with the unpredictability of Focus Assist and Active Hours ever since build 1809 on Windows 10 and this has now carried over on two PC?s; a Dell Desktop and a Toshiba Laptop. Here are some observations for the Microsoft Answers Community:

I have my Active Hours set from 7am to 11 PM on both computers. I also have notices checked to receive restart notifications. I will get the typical two notifications about the restarts sometimes on Patch Tuesday or the following day.

Sometimes the restarts are fine going without a hitch within about 1-2 hours after the first update notice. Other times for the past two YEARS I keep getting ?Your Computer Will Need to Start Outside of Active Hours, sometimes for FOUR OR FINE DAYS! The restart is not kicking in after the range of Active Hours have ended. This means, that from 11:O1PM to 7:01 AM I am not getting the restarts outside of Active Hours that Action Center says are waiting. Sometimes I just restart the computer through the Windows Start logo button I can?t stand waiting anymore.

What algorithms determine when these restarts happen outside of Active Hours? Why is there a delay of up to four or five days for a restart to occur for Restarts to happen outside of Active Hours? Microsoft needs to get a more definitive time for when the computer is set to restart outside of Active Hours and we need to see this in the Action Center toaster pop-up. Right-now, we have to g...

Hello everyone!

The title is meant to be a question, but I ran out of characters.

Firstly, I'm running both a Windows 10 and a Linux Mint. As per the default settings, if I turn on my laptop and don't touch it, it boots up Linux, I have to interact to boot to Windows. I usually use Windows, though.

Yesterday, I left home around 4.30 PM, put my laptop to sleep (as the other option was update & shut down, and I didn't feel like doing that). I came home at about 4-5 AM and noticed my laptop was awake (albeit with the screen off), and Linux was up and running. Since nobody at home touched it, the only way this is possible if it woke up from sleep (with Windows running), reboot and automatically boot up Linux. But this still doesn't answer why would this happen.

So can an automatic reboot to install updates wake up a sleeping device, in order to reboot? If yes, is there any way I can disable it? And if it can't, does anyone have a guess as to why did this happen?

Thanks in advance!

So here's the deal... I'm relatively new to PC building and this is the first PC I've built from the ground up. I spent a very long time researching which parts I was going to get, so I feel awful that it's no longer working. I have a few guesses as to what's causing the problem, but I'd love to hear some helpful ideas prior to trying anything on my own.

So, let's start with my build:

Case: Cooler Master HAF 922
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LGA 1155 Intel Z77
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
Video Card: EVGA SuperClocked Geforce GTX 770 2GB
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1600
CPU Fan: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Hard Drive: Seagate Constellation 1TB
SSD: Samsung 840 Series 120GB
PSU: Corsair HX Series 850W

Now, I spent a great deal of time ensuring that everything was plugged in correctly... and after a grueling and exhausting night, I got it to work on my first try. Everything seemed to go well - I installed Windows 7 64 bit, updated as many drivers as I could find, installed all of my favorite programs, added all of my personal stuff to the hard drives... and then, immediately after finishing a game of Slender: The Arrival, the PC just shuts down on me. I turned it back on and received no error messages or anything, so I assumed it was a fluke... till about a minute later it happens again while I'm making a Skype call. At that point, it wouldn't turn back on at all. When power is plugged in, one green LED glows on the MB... yet it won't POS... Read more

Teekay, sorry to hear about the troubles. Take your time, and go through and check all connectors again (reseat them) I would make sure you have nothing shorting the mb too, it's a pain but make sure you have the correct standoffs placed.

Hi all,

Well i've come here in desperation because i've tried every common sense solution off my own back and come up with nothing.

I built my pc exactly a week ago, and after the first couple of days i started getting infrequent bsod screens. I tried googling codes, installing different drivers(first using revo uninstaller), changed my antivirus from avast to microsoft security essentials, used the "whocrashed" program, tested some basic bios settings, and mildly increased ram volts(with some short lived success).

I'm currently in the proccess of testing ram modules individually out of each available ram slot, i've tried one and it passed memtest86+ 7 times over, and i'm just about to try it in the other ram slot....then repeat the process with the 2nd ram module.

The BSOD happens when idle on desktop as much as it happens when doing anything specific. It sometimes happens within minutes of booting windows, sometimes it takes an hour, and when i tried upping the default memory volts from 1.5v to 1.53v it lasted over 12 hours, including completing an initial 6 hours of prime 95 testing, and then after being idle for another 6 hours it BSOD.

The temporary increase in stability when the voltage change happened, makes me think ram modules, but i'll see what memtest86+ comes up with.

Meanwhile i'm really hoping some knowledgeable fellow on here might spot something very obvious software related in the dumps.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

hi and good day

I have a pc with shared folders, sharing it to over 30 units, windows xp has limit the network connections to 10 so if it reach the limit no more computer will allow to connect to my pc. how can i reset the connection without restarting my pc or resetting my router?

btw all computers are connected via switches which are connected to the router.


A:Reset All Active Network Conections w/o restarting PC

The connection limit is there to force you to use a real server. Ms wants that to be server 2003 or something similarly expensive.

Build a linux (ubuntu) box from something too old to be an xp box and share the drive from there. No limit on connections.

The original question may or may not be answered in the generic interpretation by "ipconfig /?" But is unlikely to reset what you need.

Hi I've just build a PC and when I turned it on, it seems to post ok however once it posts it restarts itself. I have gone through the problem build thread by removing everything and even without drives it still restarts and restarts. I even got the following error appear once when i powered it up "CMOS checksum bad" but after going into the BIOS and setting the default values this message went away.
I've also tried reseting the CMOS by shorting the jumper on the board but still no joy. But sometimes I can get it past the post screen and It manages to start installing XP from the disc. It goes through the loading of drivers after formatting the drive but once it does this and it restart to continue with the install it then starts restarting itself over and over again. I am at a loss at what it can be. I've just bought all the components below brand new and I'm gutted I can't get it to install the OS

The spec I have is:

Mainboard: AS Rock P43DE
CPU: 2.8Ghz Pentium D 820 Smithfield
Memory: 2GB Kingston 667
Graphics Card: 1GB Nvidia Geforce 9500GT PCI-E
OS: XP Pro

A:New Build wont install windows - keeps restarting

First I would fit a new CMOS battery, you should not get a "CMOS checksum bad" message unless you reset it with the jumper.

Then check the Sata mode in the Bios, set it to IDE/Legacy/ATA if available. If it isn't available you need to either slipstream the Sata driver onto a new XP CD with nLite or use a floppy drive with the driver on a floppy disk.

So I need to make this post short, my brand new computer I just built is crashing and restarting without a reason I can find.

My System health report wont be very accurate because I need to run OCCT stress test in the background to slow down the amount of times it crashes so I can post this.

A:Crashing/Restarting - Error 41 - No BSOD - New Build

Hello bryon and welcome to Seven Forums. My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything ... especially when it comes to SSDs and crashes.

From what I've read here, many times Error 41 is the result of a bad memory module or power supply. That also seems to be Microsoft's opinion in Scenario 3.

Description of Windows Kernel event ID 41 error in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2: "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first"

Another possibility (I think) is if the SSD wasn't properly configured or optimized prior to installing the OS. Perhaps something in this tutorial may give you a clue:

Does anyone know why after my computer is on and idle for 2-3 hours it runs really, really slow? I mean I can click on a icon and it takes 8-15 seconds to respond. I have an HP 1 Ghz. 512 MB (maxed). 60 GB mem.
Yes, I have cleaned the files and done a defragmentation. This computer is usually very fast. It only happens when it has sat for a while, idle.
Thanks in advance.

every 24 hours or so my computer completely stucks - the desktop doesn't respond at all,
and weird things are happening - the "start" button gets blury, if i press an icon then the name of it disappears, i open blank windows etc. - the only option is to restart...
sometimes when i use IE i get a few popups even if i only open google.
IE tends to crash and doesn't always show all sites ( "IE has encounterd and error...")
i'm allmost sure that i have somekind of virus or trojan but i can't find anything...
can someone help please?
thanx, bobbylong

As the thread title probably indicates I'm a complete newbie at windows 7 restore. Previous Windows OS's let me quickly and easily restore to a time that I wanted, however what I'm getting with 7 is "no restore points have been created". Hmmm. I've searched this forum for an explanation that makes sense to me to no avail; not yet ready to admit to stupidity but will acknowledge that I'm past middle age and well into frustration.

I'm in safe mode now; in regular mode my laptop has slowed to the point of only allowing my desktop to appear & I can't get anything else to work. Every time I click on something that infernal little blue donut just keeps running and running.

64 bit Sony. Is it possible to restore to a config that was working 2 days ago?

Thank you in advance my brothers and sisters who are waaaay more knowledgeable than I.

I have intel core 2 duo E6400 2.13ghz......and i bought it 5 years ago so i wanted to know can i use it for 12 hours consecutively or will it harm my computer.....or should i use it for 10 hour and give it a 2 hour rest and the use it for next 6 hours?

A:Is it safe to use computer for more than 12 hours?

Some folks never shut their computers off! In general the answer is yes.

The only issue you need to be concerned about (as far as running it for a long period of time) is overheating. But if your temps remain in the normal range then you do not need to be concerned about harming anything.
