Disable Update Orchestrator from waking my computer


I just want to stop update orchestrator from waking my computer. I've gone into task scheduler and attempted to disable it, but when I hit ok to apply changes it asks me to enter user account information. the user names available are S-1-5-18, APNS certificate, APNS certificate direct, and one of my email addresses. My email address doesn't have permission and I don't know what to do with the others. I just want to sleep why is this a feature. This is awful.

Found this answer on another question. It worked for me, so I'm copying it here for anyone else who has this problem:

First go here to download PsTools. Extract it to a folder on your desktop.

Open Start and type cmd. Right-click the program and choose to run as administrator.

Navigate to the folder where you extracted the tools by typing "cd C:\Users\Username\Desktop\Pstools", replace Username with your username and Pstools with the folder where you extracted the tools.

When you have navigated to the correct folder, copy the following command without the quotes: "psexec.exe -i -s %windir%\system32\mmc.exe /s taskschd.msc".

Open the command window and right click, choose paste. Press enter.

Navigate to Task Scheduler Library -> Microsoft -> Windows -> UpdateOrchestrator.

Right click the task called Reboot and click on Disable.

The task should now be disabled.
