I am thinking of writing a powershell app to turn all that wake-up for updates off again.

So, a common theme--customized settings not respected by windows update process, and windows being rude and waking from sleep to do its unwanted business at night. In fairness, I had the same problem with my mac pro, and the activity logs were equally useless in determining what was doing the wake up.
I have witnessed this also. It does however go back to sleep when finished.
