It could be an error in programming.
That the company wants to correct.
If they bring attention to it, may give competitors chance to bad-mouth the company.

well, if it is just fine-tuning works without affecting privacy and usability, it's ok for me as an end-user.:)

A lot of software also have auto-update feature. But who can be sure what the program is doing to your computer?

i've encountered this on at least twice last year. My PC is always put to suspend and never turned off. There was 2 occassions that the PC restarted automatically while I was in the middle my work and lost several hours of work. The restart window said something like the system needs to restart for windows update to work properly. All the time with windows update OFF.
