Not quite snoozing yet.

You should be fine leaving your SP2 install and catching some zzz's.

You did check for spyware, etc before running the install didn't you? It's highly recommended.

Having done the checks disable your AV, and all other similar programs - anti spyware etc. Make sure as little as possible is running. The whole installation should take about half an hour.
