Strange events in the middle of the night

Last night we were awoken by my laptop suddenly turning itself on.  I had placed it by the side of the bed in standby before we went to sleep, and was a bit disturbed to see it turn on.  So I just opened the case and closed it again, causing it to go back into standby.

This morning I was somewhat surprised to see a "Windows rebooted itself to install updates" message waiting for me when I turned it on.

Would Windows actually wake up from standby to install updates, and reboot itself?  You'd think that it would at least wait for the next time I brought it out of standby before installing the updates...
