    I have a clean install of OSX 10.5. The system will 9 out of 10 times, not shut down after I go to the apple and choose shut down. It closes all apps and the spinning lines appear (not the colored rainbow spinning wheel), but that is where it stays until I press and hold the power button.
    I do run with external USB drives almost daily, but it doesn't seem to matter that they are plugged in or not. I do have Bootcamp right now, but this problem began before I put Bootcamp on.
    Any ideas?

    bluetooth enabled? If so, turn it off. Try that.

    check console logs too.

    Hum...

    Hum... OK, I will give that a shot since, yes, it is always on for my mouse and keyboard. Thanks!

    Sometimes my computer will not turn off when I tell it to, and I just go into force quit, and relaunch finder. Then it shuts down.
