As part of Information Technology’s drive to deliver innovative and amazing technologies, we need to ensure that both your computer and software remain up to date. Unfortunately, these updates can be disruptive to your work – no one likes getting prompted to restart their computer every 15 minutes.
Therefore, Information Technology performs Windows updates as well as other software maintenance remotely to campus computers on Thursday evenings while you are out of the office. We can’t do this, however, if your computer is turned off.
To ensure that these updates do not interfere with your work, we ask that you please leave your computers on when you depart for the day. This will ensure that the updates will run during your absence. You can resume normal shutdown procedures on Friday.
