How to Automatically Install Software Updates While You’re Sleeping

Posted by Mayank on July 31, 2012 in Mac

With OS X Mountain Lion, you can automatically install software updates while your or your computer is sleeping (we do not expect your computer to be awake while you’re sleeping! :P).

If you do like this feature, you do not need to do anything because by default, this setting is enabled when you install OS X Mountain Lion.

If you’re not comfortable with your Mac getting automatically updated without reading the list of changes – it is not difficult at all to turn off automatic updates in Mountain Lion.

Go to System Preferences -> Software Update.

You can disable automatic software updates, security updates, and automatic downloading of apps purchased on other Macs.

It is usually recommended to keep at least the security updates on, but software updates are entirely up to you – whether you want it to happen while you sleep so that you don’t have to go through the annoyances of doing an update or you like to keep things under control.
