Macbook taking a really long time to shut down completely.
I turn off the macbook, and it stays on the desktop picture for a really long time (no dock or menu bar is shown) for about an hour. Does yours do this? What do you suggest I do?

This happened with my Macbook...I went to Terminal in the Utilities folder and typed in: sudo periodic daily weekly monthy
then press return, it'll ask you for your password, type that in and wait a couple minutes until it prompts you again, then its done. This worked for me, its usually took 30-60 seconds to shut down and only the desktop showed with no icons or toolbar or dock on the desktop, but that fixed the problem, now it only takes 5 seconds 10 seconds tops to shut down
hopes this works for you

Looks a bit like overkill, but wasn't this a system cleanup for Mac OS X TIGER?
