I have learned that the default maintenance Task Manager is set to perform Windows Updates at 2am daily in Windows 8.1. If I check the box, "Automatically wake the computer at the scheduled time to perform the maintenance task", does this mean that EVEN WITH THE LAPTOP LID CLOSED, updates will occur at 2AM each night by default if they are available?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Jack, the best way to answer your question with absolute certainty may be for you to set the Automatic Maintenance to a time when you can actually physically monitor it.

For example, set the AM time to say 20:00. Put the Laptop into Sleep mode at say 19:45 and close the lid. Then see what happens at 20:00. Even with the lid closed, if AM starts you should see the HDD indicator flashing.

If it works at 20:00 then it should also work at 02:00.
