    When I select Sleep, Restart, Shut Down, or Log Out... nothing happens. If I press the power button once the options come up to Sleep etc. Also when I click on the trash it will not open. Right clicking and selecting open has no effect. I accidentally deleted something that I need back and not being able to open the trash doesn't help. I have already restarted and that didn't help.:confused::confused::confused::confused: ??? (If it matters, I have a rMBP)

    I don't know why you are having your other issues, but you can always open terminal and move the files out.
    From your user directory type cd .Trash and hit enter
    then type mv filename ~/Desktop and hit enter
    The file will be moved to your desktop. Change the destination if you want it someplace else.
