10.5: Be aware of a Software Update Command-Q issue
Authored by: lstewart on Mar 26, '08 04:56:27AM

While I agree it's a bug that Apple's Software Update app responds to command-Q during an install, I don't think the problem extends to OS updates in Leopard, does it? Starting with Leopard, any update that requires the system to restart no longer runs in the regular Software Update mode, but instead requires you to quit everything first and pretty much appears to take over your computer during the update. I would be seriously surprised if this mode allowed you to command-Q, since there is no menu or Cancel button or anything available while the update is installing. Or maybe I'm remembering wrong?

10.5: Be aware of a Software Update Command-Q issue

It's exactly that mode which apparently takes over the screen which does respond to a Command+Q.

The updater quits immediately and returns to the login window (even on machines where auto-login is enabled and there's only one account).
