I have a question concerning some updates. Basically I have a computer in a collection and I assigned that collection a maintenance window. When I was at that particular location early this week I saw the machine downloading an update outside of its collection maintenance window. My questions are where can I look to see why this is happening? Also, could it have anything to do with the default collections not having a maintenance window? (ie: "All Desktop and Servers" or "All Windows XP Systems") My logic for that question is that the machines also appear under those collections. Any help would be great.

Maintenance Windows aggregate - meaning that they add to one another. If you have MW on COLLA from 1-2, and on COLLB from 2-6, and a machine was in both collections it would install software from 1-6.
The best place to look for MW information would be in the client logs:
in the %systemroot%\system32\ccm\logs directory (for 32bit systems)
Also, you might try this web-report that lists all MWs:
select v_collection.name as 'Collection Name', v_servicewindow.name as 'ServiceWindow Name', Description, Starttime, Duration, IsGMT from v_servicewindow
join v_collection on v_servicewindow.collectionid = v_collection.collectionid
or this one that shows the MW's for a particular client:
select sw.Name as 'CEPSWName', sw.Description, sw.StartTime, sw.Duration as 'DurationMinutes', sw.IsGMT as 'StartTimeIsGMT', sw.IsEnabled as 'CEPSWEnabled',case when sw.ServiceWindowType=5 then '*' else ' ' end as 'OSDServiceWindow'
from v_ServiceWindow sw
join v_FullCollectionMembership fcm on sw.CollectionID = fcm.CollectionID
where fcm.Name =@Name and isnull(fcm.IsObsolete, 0)= 0
