I have a 2007 MBP, and for maybe 3 years or more I've been having an issue on shutdown. I haven't really worried about it since restarting/shutting down is a very uncommon event for me, but I'm in a weird mood today and wondered if maybe someone knew what the deal was.

Basically, when I shut down or restart, the screen will go black, and the white indicator light at the front of the MBP will stay on very dim. It will stay like this indefinitely, fans still spinning. I have to hold down the power button to get it to shut off, and push it again to get it to restart. The problem is fairly intermittent, it happens maybe 60-70% of the shutdowns. I haven't found any pattern for when it does or does not happen. Also, I had my logic board replaced over a year ago for an unrelated issue, and that didn't seem to change anything. Oh, and I'm running 10.5.8, I've had 10.5 since it came out (just after I bought the machine).

After the MBP boots back up I get a message on the desktop that says something like, "The computer restarted after Mac OS X quit unexpectedly, send error report?"

Anyone seen something like this before?

Edit: Here's what I get from crash reporter, if this means anything to anyone:

I've tried resetting SMC before, didn't seem to help. Is there any corruption check I can do with Onyx? I have that app.

Onyx can check if permissions are out of whack, so, you do that.....but don't know if that could cause your issue....but couldn't hurt....

Also, run Apple's Disk Utility and check disks....

Best is to get DiskWarrior and/or TechTool Pro, preferably both....

Ha, nevermind, I do have diskWarrior! Totally forgot about it, I used it a couple years ago to save files from a failing external... anyway, I ran a scan and got 2 results:


File: "com.apple.iphotomosaic.plist"
Location: ~/Library/Preferences
--Property List data is damaged and cannot be repaired

File: ".intelligence"
Location: /usr/share
--Resource header is damaged and cannot be repaired

Seems that .intelligence is a leftover from some old app I had installed, and iphotomosaic I'm not sure of, but I can't imagine it would be causing this problem.

Delete both files and restart Mac and then see how things go...sometimes damaged files can make your Mac do wacky things I've found in the past...

Also, highly recommend that update your DiskWarrior version...go to Alsoft's website and get updater and make new disk....

No luck, deleted the files and same issue when I restarted.
