Okay, when I shutdown my macbook, if I close the lid (screen) before it has completley shutdown, it goes into standby mode. then, the next time I open the lid to use it, the compute finishes shutting down, and then I have to start it like normal. Is there anyone who knows what I am talking about? So as it is, if I want to shutdown my macbook, I have to sit and wait for it to completley shut down, THEN close the lid. what is up with this?
