Windows 10 Engaged Restart Group Policy

Engaged Restart is a good feature . Where user desktop will not be force rebooted. As it will request the user to

  • Restart
  • Pick a time
  • Snooze

Now we can make sure how many times he can snooze and place a dead line if he ignores it.So that the machine will reboot . if user keeps snoozing it.

I have placed like below. So that it will allow him only one snooze and period of 4 days deadline (pending restart).

  • Specify the timing before transitioning from Auto-restart to Engaged restart (pending user schedule): Transition (days):  2
  • Specify snooze for Engaged restart reminder notifications: Snooze (days):  1
  • Specify the deadline before a pending restart will automatically be executed outside of active hours: Deadline (days):  4
