Sophos Home Beta - "Reboot for Update" Notification - Disable or Mute

Today I've got an update notification that told me to reboot to complete the update. Although I usually don't mind this, it threw me out of the game I was playing (full screen, DirectX 12 application). I clicked "remind me later" and went back into the game. This happened again after around 30 minutes and I decided to just leave the message there, which fixed the issue of the game being minimized.

Although a reboot seems to be required for certain updates it would be nice to be able to disable or mute the message - or that it does not affect full-screen applications so that I can just reboot later when I stop playing the game. As rebooting the machine right away is not an option all the time.

    I totally agree with Andi.
    I would really like to be able to disable that notification to.
    It both messes up my games and my movie experience. Because it interrups them both constantly.

    You could make a yellow warning triangle on the task icon or something instead ? :)

    Kind regards Morten

    Please please please enable us to turn this off Sophos. Windows is annoying enough as it is with update notifications, please don't add to the frustration.
