I believe this is a process controlled by IBM's Service Director.

You can change the service director settings using the CHGSD command.

This parameter looks promising....

 Automatic PTF monitor:           AUTOPTF                 
   Schedule day . . . . . . . . .                *SUN     
   Download PTFs  . . . . . . . .                *YES     

I'd try changing "Download PTFs" to *NO...

Subject: automatically downloaded PTFs



I have been asked to find out how to turn off the feature that allows PTFs
to
automatically be downloaded into the AS/400 from IBM.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

BTW....we haven't had too much trouble from Y2k....hope the rest of you are
as
lucky...most of our problems were due to people powering down for the first
time
(don't ask me why they haven't done so before).

Happy New Year

Michele R
