Let us not forget the "initiate Windows shutdown because I have to leave to catch a flight, and Windows decides to start installing updates, and You Must Not Turn Off The Computer for the next half hour while it does that idiocy".

Thank the gods there's an option buried somewhere (Group Policy, maybe?) to disable the astoundingly stupid bit of code that changes the Shut Down menu option to "Install Updates and Shut Down".
