Thanks Glenn.
  Would that option in GPO give the user the ability to suspend a reboot or is 
the user not prompted with the option? If it gives the user the option to 
reboot later, can a forced reboot be applied if the has not been rebooted after 
about 8hrs after patch applied.?

  So, the first time they all connect, your clients will probably install the 
BITS update, and the Windows Installer update.
  But after that, they will download the whole lot (or what can be done in one 
sitting... for example, SP2 has to be done by itself.)
  As to the restart option, set this Group Policy option:
  No Auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Update installations - Enabled

  Hi Guys,
  Just installed WSUS, and from what I can see loads of pc's on our network 
have not been patched in quite a while. Which means I have a lot of work 
pushing stuff out.
  My question, is there a way to push out more than 1 update and have the pc's 
restart only once. Also is it possible to have the user control when the pc 
should be restarted after the update has been installed, and by whom.
