automatic updates

I recently installed f10. I installed kde (I like kde), additionally I installed compiz/metacity. The platform (MB) has a ati 875 chipset.

The install was a little odd, but it was up and running (though the ati drivers/X implementation and openGL was a little slow in respect to my experience with core 7).

My problem, I have allowed automatic updates to proceed after the new install, which I believe tweaks (bug fixes) various software applications and the kernel on the fly.

Anyhow I received updates of the kernel recently and did not reboot for several days. After rebooting the kernel broke portions of kde metacity, networking, bluetooth etc etc.

Of course I rebooted to the previous kernel, and everything is working once again.

My question is what are most users and developers doing, shutting off the updater to get a project done.
Is their a way to watch when to allow updates to occur or is there a way to repair broken services and software on the fly (i.e. recompile) when a new kernel does arrive and does break things.

I trying to get a grip on how to allow updates, but avoid major break downs on my server/workstations.

If someone could advise me, or suggest threads or help pages to me on how to approach not having a broken machine every couple of weeks would be great.
