I have a late 2013 iMac and since beta 1 of 10.11.5, during system shutdown it hangs, that is, the top bar disappears while the dock and the image background are still visible. In each version, beta 1, 2 and 3, I reverted to 10.11.4 and all is fine.
Any ideas? (waiting for the final version is one...)

It's a beta, so don't expect it to run perfectly.

Def report the bug.

Since Terminal is still accessible, you could shutdown by running the following:

Code:
sudo shutdown -s now
Sometime my MBP hangs on shutdown but the above command forces it to shutdown (or restart using -r) without having to hold the power button.

Thank you for your reply. I tried shutting down and rebooting from the command line and it works. Nevertheless I think I going to wait for the final version.
