automatic updates after lenny install

i have installed lenny main here from the same CD on 2 PCs. Both have the same /etc/apt/sources.list. On one PC i get automatic updates allmost every day and on the other PC i haven't gotten an auto-update since the install. apt-get update runs ok.
I have seen from other posts here, that stable distros are supposed to get only security updates. Why, tho, does one PC get auto-updates, the other not? Is there some switch to enable auto-updates?
