    Hi I have recently restored my rMBP 15 in early 2013 to factory setting, because before the restore it had problems shutting down (sometimes took over 20 seconds, sometimes stuck on the grey page and never shutdown)

    Now I noticed if I run sims 3 full screen, and if i press command+option+esc it terminates sims 3 right away as before it would show the force quit window with sims 3 still running. Is this suppose to happen? Shouldn't I have to click sims 3 then force quit after the force quit window pops up to actually force quit? Or Do you think this is problem with sims 3?

    Also another question about shutting down rMBP. Now it still takes about 20 seconds to shut after the restore. After doing some googling a lot of people say it's an issue with moutain lion, so can anyone confirm to this post that this happens to their rMBP or MBP and I shouldn't worry about it? Because I am quite concerned, I have seen videos on youtube of ppl shutting down their rMBPs and only took them 2-3 seconds (almost instant shutdown).

    Thank you very much!

    I'm confused.

    Just don't press those buttons? Is that usually how you close Sims? Why is that a problem?

    Also yes that is a fairly common problem. It's a bug in ML. I thought I read it was fixed in an update, but I guess it hasn't. You'll likely need to wait for an update to fix it.

    I'm ask more why you're force quitting apps rather than closing them down normally.

    I am not force force quitting anything. To my understanding: press cmd+option+esc brings up a window, then in the window select the app, click force quit at bottom right corner, then the selected app gets force quit.
    And what happens to mine seems like an instant crash after the cmd option esc command. I don't think anything should be terminated right away by pressing "cmd option esc" (which is what happens to me, put aside the "clicking force quit button" in the window since the window never shows up) but correct me if i'm wrong.

    I think maybe sims is just so buggy on mac and I will contact EA support see what they say :(

    But thanks for the replies about the shutdown, I have checked the HD in disk utility in the pre-boot thing (hold cmd+r before comp boots), it says disk seems alright so I guess I will just leave it for now since I have until next april for warranty.
