Windows 10 question- maybe simple, maybe not

I have read a bit on Windows 10, and about the "sleep" mode.

I know I can't do anything with the pc during sleep.

Does anybody know what MS background operations, if any, can run when the desktop pc is asleep?

For instance, can the auto disk defrag run?

Most importantly, will the pc check for updates and download them when it is in sleep mode? Apparently some people see this on laptops.

If the answer to this last question is no, then putting the pc to sleep after working hours seems equivalent to pausing the updates.
