When updates are being installed, the following message periodically
appears:

Do not turn off or unplug your computer; it will turn off
automatically.

My question is... what happens if you do unplug or turn off your
computer?

If it's in the middle of writing system files, you may not be able to boot
up again.

You will most likely *** up one of the updates.
That could be not a problem, or a major problem.
Note that the warning states it will turn your computer off for you after it is done.

I have known of those who have done just that and speak of regretting their
mistake.

Trying to live dangerously. Try it and you will have a surprise awaiting you. Not a
smart thing to do

What if you simply unplug it? If you have 7h battery life left, what
does Windows care if you unplug it?

What happens if you stick your hand into an open flame?

By 'unplug', the implication is 'remove all power'. That's an impressive
laptop battery that you have.

The warning is written that way because MOST computers don't have a 7h
battery. If you are confident that the LAPTOP will continue running
until all the disk writes are complete, well I guess that's your risk to
take.
