Microsoft has recently released a new "preview" update Windows 10 for users enrolled in "Microsoft Insider Program", Thus reaching the 17107 version.
In contrast to the previous versions, it does not bring noticeable significant changes to users, but it solves a series of bugs and improves the features and options of Windows 10 added in the previous update for Redstone 4.
It's also a novelty that even if not visible is especially important for laptops running the upcoming Windows 10 option. Microsoft has changed its management system Windows Update for the scenario in which Your PC is connected to an AC power source.
Windows Update – Changes in RS4
Until this release, the Windows Update system behaves in a way that users could miss installing updates if the PC or laptop was open but did not work. The operating system, even if it had to make updates, switches to "Sleep" or "Hibernate" mode after the default time in "Settings", thus preventing updating.
We know that many times Microsoft releases successive Windows updates that do not install all at once. Sometimes you just need to restart before you start installing another update.
With this update made to Windows 10 RS5 v.17107, if your PC is connected to a power source but is not being used actively, it will wait until 2 hours to install the pending updates. It's a pretty good feature that Microsoft is trying to avoid missing urgent updates from users.
