    I just got my 13" macbook pro back from the apple store after a repair and now whenever i boot up the computer a list of actions appears on a black screen in white text. It also happens when i shutdown the computer.

    The OS still boots up but does anyone know how to change the settings or something so that list doesn't appear.

    Did you try repairing permissions and zapping the PRAM and VRAM? It almost sounds like it's booting into single user mode every time...

    I've just tried that and no luck

    Some of the words that came up were efiboot and Darwin Kernel but i'm not sure what it all means.

    I think it may be some sort of debugging tool or something that the guys at the apple store used but forget to turn off.

    It's booting in verbose mode. Check your boot-args with "nvram -p". You'll need to reset them, most likely.
