Actually, no choking here. While I slept, Windows Vista
made 185 updates automatically and restarted my computer.
OK, so I am not crazy about the auto restart but at least
it did not happen when I was working my tail to a nub on
a new project.
I need to find a way for a big bell to alert me at bedside
IF Windows wants to restart my computer. Other than taking
it to bed with me and snuggling up to it...

|From the Department of Half-baked Ideas:|
With your SMS connections (client? Friend?), why not explore the possibility of having your computer send you a text message when it reboots?
Then, set your Text Message ring tone to a loud bell and keep it on by your bedside, instead of the PC :)
I tried Google, but, with only one cuppa joe in me, I can't seem to find the right keywords. I bet Vista has something built in. Remember the S.M.A.R.T. drive technology? How similar is that - alert-wise?
