well if it's setup to go into hibernating then yes it would probably do it ... I've disabled all those things

edit:also it wont download all patches only one at a time

As already posted, you need to make sure those things are disabled. I automatically disable them all the time anyway. The only power saving option I use is monitor power off after 20 minutes idle. The other ones are annoying and unnecessary.
