    So I installed retrospect backup software on my Powerbook but decided to delete it because I didn't like that it was preventing my computer from shutting down; but now, even with the program gone, the computer still wont shut down! Please help!

    I don't know if this is related but when I installed Retrospect it was when I got my external FW HD. I found my iMac would have problems shutting down if it had any FW devices connected, I don't think it was Retrospect giving me the problem 'cause once I unplugged the problem was cured.

    There's an updated retrospect firewire driver on Just download that, install, and you will be able to shutdown. :)

    If you can't find it let me know.
