you either have to schedule it so the updating is done while its on or leave it on so updating can be done by a task scheduler.

To schedule a new task

Start Task Scheduler.
Double-click Add Scheduled Task.
Follow the instructions in the Add Scheduled Task wizard.
Notes

If you want to configure advanced settings for the task, select the Open advanced properties for this task when I click Finish check box in the final screen of the wizard.
To have a new task run repeatedly each time it runs, select the Open advanced properties for this task when I click Finish check box in the final screen of the wizard, then click the Schedule tab and click Advanced.
If the task program requires parameters, select the Open advanced properties for this task when I click Finish check box in the final screen of the wizard, then click the Task tab and type them in Run, after the task path.
Make sure that the system date and time for your computer are accurate. Task Scheduler relies on this information to know when to run scheduled tasks. To check or change the date and time, double-click the time on the taskbar.

As far as I know, there's no way to have it check for and then auto install Windows Updates. If your referring to Microsoft's <a href=http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q224420> Windows Critical Update Notification 3.0</a>, it schedules itself to run and will check for updates if you leave the PC on and connected to the net but it won't auto download and auto install the updates if any are found. You need to reply to a message if you want to install the updates.
