Bugs & Viruses Users of Windows who have set the Automatic Updates option to "Download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them" were surprised to find that the latest WMF patch had overridden these settings and not only installed the patch, but rebooted the machines as well.

I have NEVER heard of the OS pulling a laptop or any computer out of standby, if Windows did anything it would have to have been before or after, and it's possible that it was just subtle enough for you not to notice.

When a computer is in standby there shouldn't be any OS code still running in the processor. I'd say there is none at all but that'd be a gamble since I'm not entirely sure.
