What kind of strange things is windows up date doing??
You might try this for the sleep mode problem.
When it goes into sleep mode, after some time it will cut itself on and I see the windows update icon on the bottom right corner of the screen like it does when the update runs, only when I click on it nothing comes up like it normally would to show me the progress of the update. I have it set to run automatically In the early morning hours so it is done during the "bonus period" given by my IP (Hughesnet). I have started turning it completely off so it won't burn up mb's while not in use.
Also when my computer is restarted, there is a notice at the bottom right of the screen saying "You are not connected to a windows service" or something like that. I think the windows update service may be corrupted with something.
