    When I use my MB for an extended amount of time, my MB will not restart or shut down unless I hard shut down. When I try to do it, a pop up says that Finder (or some other application) has failed to turn off and that I need to force quit the program before I try again. When I would go to force quit, the application would not be there or for Finder, clicking relaunch does nothing. If I don't use the MB for a long time I am able to turn it off without any problems. Is there something I can do to fix this?

    Do you have any programs/plugins installed other than what your Mac came with?

    Could this be related to a mounted volume that won't unmount?

    Do you access files/drives on other computers on your local network?

    I usually just put it to sleep when I sleep but when I use it I generally use Firefox, Limewire, Transmission, and Itunes. Whenever I use Quicktime, I have Flip4Mac also. Other than that I don't really use any other apps or plug-ins that I know of (I think that's what you're talking about right? Sorry not sure).
    I don't know what the unmounted volume is so I can't say anything about that and I don't access any of my files from another computer (but I do use a wireless network that is password encrypted, could it be hacked? :eek:).
