    Hey there guys

    I have a macbook with the following specs:
    2 GB ram
    160 GB HDD
    Intel Core2Duo processor

    when i shutdown every day it will do nothing and popup logout has failed because ___ failed to quit.

    I then force quit everything, then same problem, except no popup saying logout failed.. so i have to force shutdown which is bad for it.. any ideas?

    Open up terminal in Macintosh HD(or your hard drive name)->Applications->Utilities->Terminal. Then type top. Take a screen shot and post it.

    I see you are running crossover. It's not using much CPU time, but if I recall, this can be intensive. Everything else looks fine here. I see you are also running two microsoft programs like word or excel. These also can be intensive. Are you completely closing programs when you are done with them?
