    I have connected my Intel MacMini and the PC to a SynMaster display using a OmniView™ ENTERPRISE Series Dual-Port KVM Cable. With that I can easily switch between two computers. It wasn't a problem setting it up except the fact that the Mini never shuts down completely. When I press shutdown it does go through the shutdown process. Even the small LED in the front goes off. But when I touch the back I feel that the fan is running(Hot air is comming out). If I want to start the Mini again, I have to unplug the power cable and then plug it in again. Have you got an idea what I am doing wrong here?

    By the way the PC shuts down just normal.

    TIA

    Does the Mini shut down properly without the KVM stuff attached?

    OK. I have found a solution myself. I think the problem was with the parameters RAM. It was somehow incorrectly set.

    Solution: Hold Command + Option + P + R during bootup. On startup you will hear the first system chime (which is normal and will happen whether you are holding down the keys or not). Continue to hold the keys down until you hear two subsequent chimes. After a three total system chimes you can let go of the keys and let the Mac continue to startup normally.

    That will reset the PRAM settings and if there is any false configuration "Reset" should do the trick.
