How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Allow user to select 'automatically restart' when applying all required changes.

When the user received the 'Software changes must be applied to your computer' there are two radio options:
'Apply all required changes now (recommended)'
'Apply all required changes outside my business hours'

There is also an checkbox that say 'Restart my computer automatically if needed'. However, this checkbox is disabled when the first radio option is selected. I would ask that it remains enabled for both options. We are trying to train users to take an active role in installing updates according to their own schedule. The reboot process has become a large portion of the update process. So if they take the 'install now' option when they go to lunch or a meeting they come back to a machine that needs 5-10 minutes worth of reboot to finish. It would be preferable to give them the option to reboot as well so they come back to a fully patched machine ready for use.
