Auto-launching of applications

update-manager is now set to auto-launch every 2 days. Even though I
have disabled this, I think it is not the right thing to do.

Apparently the window is supposed to open in the background, but I think
that users may wonder why a program is seemingly running without them
wanting it to.

Also, I'm sure I'm not the only person who doesn't use update-manager.

Can anyone explain to me why autolaunching programs is a good idea?
