I recently bought a new Macbook Pro and was doing some housecleaning of my setup today and have encountered a strange problem. My 2012 Mac Mini is connected to a Benq monitor via HDMI cable, and everything works as it should. I connected a G-Raid thunderbolt drive to the Mini and it shows up as it should. But, if I eject the drive and shut it off, it causes the computer to shut down and reboot. I was connecting the Mini to the monitor via the DisplayPort connection daisy chained through this drive and it would shut down like this if I shut the drive down, but I don't see how there could be any connection now. Any ideas as to whites causing this?
