I don't mind to keep my computers uptodate, but an unscheduled (by me) reboot is every bit as bad a a blue screen.
A while ago, I used my PC to transcode stacks of blurays overnight with Handbrake, about a dozen or so every night. After completing the queue it should have shut down, but regularly I would find it in the morning, powered up at the login screen, and the work only partially done.
That's just stupid and inexcusable. I don't care about the defaults they chose, but they should have put an override in somewhere, even if you bury it in the "I'm an advanced user and I know what I'm doing section" a.k.a. gpedit.msc
