How can we improve?

Change default of requested reboot from Restart Now to Remind me

We currently ran into a problem with this design. We request reboots during the day once a week while patching. When this popup appeared a user hit enter quickly so it seemed like they were forced to reboot and they lost a huge amount of work on a spreadsheet. If the default option was set to remind me later, this would not have happened.

    I was just going to post a request for this. It happens to developers regularly as they are coding. Maintaining a green stance keeps the computers off at night so reboots have to happen during business hours. A confirmation dialog box would be acceptable to me as well.
