This *may* be default behavior but I must admit I've never seen a question
When this happens, do you see a 0x8007F0F4* error? What does
WindowsUpdate.log have to say about this?
Control Panel > Power Options > Power schemes: Are you using one of the
Windows schemes or one associated with Power Management software install
with your laptop (e.g., Dell QuickSet)?
*0x8007F0F4 = Setup cannot continue because one or more pre-requisites
required to install failed.
