    Hey, so my iMac hangs at shutdown. It quits everything and the menu bar goes away but then it just sits there with the desktop pattern showing until I manually turn it off. Getting pretty annoying. Anyway, I looked at the console before shutdown and noticed the .at.obdev.LSD and/or the EyeTV helper app possibly to blame. These don't make any sense to me, but I wouldn't mind a little help in trying to figure out what is hanging the system at the end of the day. Thanks!

    If you are running an older version of Little Snitch, try upgrading to the latest and see if the problem goes away.

    Yikes I was using V.1.1.3 and the newest is 2.5 of Little Snitch. I appreciate the insight and will let you know Bob.

    Problem still exists, I'm getting a lot of beach balls and hang ups too. This slightly worries me as to being something more serious than a software issue. I've had the HDD replaced in this iMac once already. Though no clicking and diagnostic scan came back ok. Mysterious...

    Do a verify disk using the disk utility - repair if needed. Then try disconnecting everything (including the EyeTV) but the keyboard and mouse, and see if the problem persists. If it does, you might get hints on it in the logs (uninstall little snitch for a while too, to check further).

    Yeah I booted from the DVD yesterday and scanned the drive, everything's ok. I have noticed that iPhoto 09's latest update has correlated with a lot of beach balls and stuff. Wouldn't be the culprit in the shutdown problem just because it's been happening before I did the upgrade.

    Here's the latest console log. Still fairly perplexed, though now I see some prefs from Parallels popping up, not sure if that is relevant though. The "com.apple.launchd" appears to be the issue (leading suspicion).

    EDIT: I think it might be something to do with Time Machine (the hanging). The shutdown problem is hard to trace because anything I might have changed would have been done a while ago. I'm frustrated enough at the moment to possibly just reinstall Leopard (and believe me, I never recommend this sort of thing).
