    Anyone know of a way to disable the "Ready to Restart" nag that pops up in the top right? The one that says "Remind me in an hour, remind me tonight or remind me tomorrow"

    I'd even settle for it still having a warning icon in the notification area, so long as it's not popping up and needing an answer to dismiss it.

    No smart alec "You should really restart it because security" answers, please (I know what people are like for snide comments on this forum); it doesn't answer the question.

    I'm happy to take responsibility for my own security risks and not be nagged or babysat by my own OS.

    You're lucky. It's something I really liked escaping when I switched, only for it to eventually follow me to OS X with Mavericks!

    It's a pretty rare occurrence on my MacBook, usually only happens when an update warns you it's going to need to restart if installed. How often do you get them?

    Well, I tend to put it off, but if not, maybe once a week?

    Sounds trivial I know, but it's enough to be quite annoying especially when I don't feel like shutting everything down (there's the resume thing I know, but it's not perfect)

    seriously, sounds like you've downloaded something...that requires a restart to finish installing. i've never seen that message in any other circumstance...

    if there's something waiting to be installed, makes sense you'd get that message...until you restart and finish the process...

    Dismissed it now but I'm pretty sure it said it was for a system update. Probably one of the point releases or security patches that keeps coming out!
