I remember this issue from a few years ago when I had a rubbish internet connection.
Apper is the issue. Two options 1) uninstall apper and just use yast to check for updates as and when it suits you or 2) there must be an option with apper to change the default behaviour so it does not do a check on booting.
To me it looks as if you think that you need Apper for that “checking when you like it”.
That is not the case. You can use YaST > Software > Online Update for patches from the Update repos. And you can use YaST > Software > Software management for checking if there are newer versions including patches for all you have installed.
YaST is still the System Managment tool for openSUSE, including software management. Apper/PackageKit is only an addition from some desktop environments.
It is up to your discretion what you want to use (and they do not bite each other as long a you do not use them both at the same time).
BTW for your better understanding;
Apper does not check after reboot. It checks after login. Remember that it is a desktop feature, thus it works only from within a loged in KDE session.

Sorry, I was away for a week, so I could not answer earlier.
I prefer YaST too, so I have not installed Apper, nor PackageKit.
The fact that you have a automatic login does not change the fact that it is still a login (as the name implies). And you should be aware of that and it’s implications. Maybe not in your daily work with the sytem, but certainly as you try to understand how things work and want to talk with others about that here on the forums.
