    I have a MacBook Pro 2.16 C2D that I just updated with Leopard. I noticed that occasionally the computer will hang when I attempt a shutdown. I didn't have this problem with Tiger so I assume it's a bug in Leopard.

    When I try a normal shutdown all I see is my desktop wallpaper and that little circular animated icon. I have to hold in the power button to force a shutdown.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    I've walked away for about five minutes while the machine was shutting down only to come back and find it was still in progress. I guess I've never really waited longer than that. I just held down the power button to force it.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one experiencing this issue. Hopefully, it'll be fixed in an update soon.

    phew what a relief that mine is not an isolated problem. I'm running a MacBook (with leopard) 2.16Ghz 1Gb Ram...

    Try this. Try going shut down, and immediately closing the lid. See what happens. I've found that it actually shuts down in good time. I really hope Apple fix the problem though!

    I have the same problem on both my iMac (2.8GHz) and MBP (2.33). My MacMini does not have this problem.

    The iMac and MBP both have pretty much the same software installed. The Mini has basically no extra software. I'm wondering if it may be software I'm running.

    By default, both machines start:

    Any other sufferers running these items?

    Tonight (another 8 hrs in Oz) I'll have a look in console.app to see if there's something in the logs.

    If someone wants to look before me, that would be great.

    Polishmacuser- Same thing happens with me... I have latest generation MBP.

    I shut down and the screen is black... BUT ITS NOT OFF!! I have to wait probably a full 10 seconds before it actually turns off.

    If I shut the screen before then (but while the screen is still black), it goes into sleep, while shutting down! Weird...

    My restarts after 12-24hrs uptime take at least 5 minutes since I upgrade to Leopard. I just tried a restart from the login screen after powering up from a shutdown...it still took a minute.

    I haven't been having any sleep issues since the upgrade.

    Lets just be glad a restart isn't necessary all that often and hope Apple gets a fix out quick.

    I've had a similar issue. I performed an archive and install on a Macbook.

    To those who are experiencing this issue, do you have either .Mac with iDisk synchronization active or Microsoft Office installed?

    For my problem, I had a feeling this is a synchronization issue. I've removed Microsoft's synchronization agent and corrected problems I had synchronizing iDisk (it probably self corrected after it was undergoing an endless synchronization but I essentially installed and uninstalled iDisk several times).

    Mine takes a long time to shut down too. Tiger shut down in like, 2 seconds. It was amazing.

    Now, when I shut down, I get that spinny loading thing for like 20 seconds, and it sits on a black screen for another 20-30 seconds before powering off (or restarting).

    A couple times I have gotten this message that says something about Cache or Caching or something. Not sure what it said. Haven't gotten it for a while.

    I hope this gets fixed in 10.5.1 because I want to go back to showing off to my friends how fast OS X shuts down and starts up. Now my 3 year old cluttered PC blows it out of the water. :(

    This is on a SR MBP 2.2GHz. It has happened ever since I first did an erase and install. I do not have .Mac, iDisk.

    It is hard for me to know if any program is causing it because i have only restarted 7-8 times (just for updates and a couple times for bootcamp). but I am definitely sure it happened the first time i installed.

    yeah same happens to me once in a while. Also when shutting down, sometimes Mail hangs, therefore not letting Finder shut down, making me go to activity monitor and quit the Window user process

    Fix to Leopard Hanging on Shutdown

    I too had the same problem on my iMac after installing Leopard but I seem to have found a workaround.....

    Turn off Automatic iDisk Synchronisation..
    (Right Click on your iDisk and reselect the option to turn it off)

    My iMac shuts down every time now! :)

    I'm about to try this iDisk solution as quite frankly I'm about to ditch mac.com that's proven all but useless to me, lol, but for the record. I did a console analysis on what's been going on and aside a FLURRY of startup errors that I'm betting slow down my computer's overall start-up (1st Gen Black Macbook 2.0 GHz), when shutting down it stalls because of:

    11/16/07 2:44:50 AM com.apple.SystemStarter[29] Shutdown failed: Cannot find license file. (-1,359:2 "No such file or directory")>

    To say the least I find such a complaint from my computer beyond interesting and well into bewildering... any thoughts? And does anyone know how I can clean up my start-up so that I'll stop having errors and it'll just smoothly boot?

    My MBP doesn't completely hang, but the screen goes blank for a good 20 seconds before it shuts off or restarts.

    The screen never went blank (i.e. black, nothing there) when I shutdown on Tiger, or if it did it was only for a few seconds.

    Leopard hangs on shut down


    Several people have suggested turning off automatic sync for idisk.

    A number of people have reported this didn't work, it didn't work for me either, at first.

    I shut down with the power button, then pressed the power buttom to turn on the Mac Pro, and let my Mac Pro complete the startup cycle.

    Check to make sure idisk had automatic sync turned off.

    And repeated this routine several times.

    After the 2nd or 3rd hard power down. When I next shut down the Mac Pro, it shut down! Yea

    I have no idea wants going on, obviously I stumbled upon this solution.

    But if it worked for me, it might work for someone else.

    Anybody notice any changes after 10.5.1? It's a little better for me, but still not like tiger... sadly.

    Home maded fix to shut down problem

    I have to G5 connected and the problem happen's only went i connect one to the other. I fund that went i eject the disk image and shut down the computer frezze. But if you do a Finder Relaunch before shut down it do it good.

    I hope this work for other until apple fix this the right way.
