Windows Update Default 3am
I'm currently putting together a brief training session for my work colleagues (we're each taking a chapter of a Windows 7 book) to do with Windows Updates & IE. I was wondering, does anyone know if there is any specific reason why Microsoft chose to set the default Detect & Install time for automatic Windows Updates to 3.00am? Is there a logical reason or was it 3.00am when they programmed that part of Windows?

I always presumed a time zone change had not occurred (and our 3am would be a time that made sense in whatever time zone Microsoft's HQ resides) or that it was simply "Nobody is using their PC at 3am. Leave it on overnight and it will install updates and shut down as appropriate."
Couldn't give you a definitive answer, though. Would be interesting to know if there was any official reasoning.

Its not on by default but windows update can wake the pc from standby and install updates. I also thought the wed/thur after patch tuesday would be more logical.
