    Hey guys, I've been having issues with my laptop restarting "Sleep Wake Failure" after sleep. I was told its probably one of my kernel extensions. I ran this command in terminal to find 4 extensions, but when I go looking in all the folders /System/Libraries/Extensions home folder they are not in there. Only LittleSnitch is but that one I would like to keep. I want to delete the other 3... How can I find the location of the other 3? I need them deleted. I've deleted the software connected to them already.

    kextstat | grep -v apple

    62 **** at.obdev.nke.LittleSnitch (4724) ****
    95 **** com.squirrels.airparrot.framebuffer (3) ****
    125 **** com.avatron.AVExVideo (3.0.1) ****
    126 **** com.avatron.AVExFramebuffer (3.0.1) ****

    PS when I try sudo rm -R com.squirrels.airparrot.framebuffer it tells me: No such file or directory

    Etrecheck

    Download and run the app EtreCheck. It will create a report showing you where all those items are launching from.

    Everything should be in one of these folders.

    ~/Library/LaunchAgents (~ is your users folder)
    /Library/LaunchAgents
    /Library/LaunchDaemons
    /Library/StartupItems
    /System/Library/Extensions/

    Thank you for the link, so I found those 2 extensions that others have had issues with in the link above and I deleted them. Thanks

    BTW I tried

    Code:
    find . -type d -name 'com.squirrels.*'
    in terminal and it come up with A LOT app support files, but no files in any other folders. How can my mac keep reporting this extension: com.squirrels.airparrot.framebuffer when I can't find it anywhere? What could I be missing here? Could this terminal code be wrong: kextstat | grep -v apple ??
