    Hi everyone,

    I have an early 2008 Macbook Pro, and am currently running OSX Lion (however, this problem randomly began while I was still running Snow Leopard). My problem is that iTunes just won't stay closed after I quit the program. I've tried quit, force quit, and "killall iTunes" in Terminal. Thirty seconds later, after I do either of those things, it reopens.

    This random reopening of iTunes is preventing my Macbook from going to sleep. There's obviously something running in the background that I can't get rid of. And when i do, iTunes will wake the computer from sleep too.

    Also, I don't have any iTunes widgets or anything.

    Has this happened to anyone?

    How about a screenshot of all processes running in Activity Monitor? It may help us narrow it down.

    Anything on here help?

    Sorry, these guys were talking about a widget that was the culprit. i don't have any widgets installed.

    I just took a look at your activity monitor picture. You have "my processes" selected. Your machine is running a lot more processes and the problem could be one of them. To see all process that are running, select "all processes" in the little button box.
