    I need to restart my macbook in order to complete a software update process. But whenever I try to restart or shutdown, it says "The application Transmission cancelled restart. Try quitting Transmission, then try to restart again." Only problem is I can't seem to quit Transmission. Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Do you have downloads/uploads running in Transmission? If so, stop them first and then try quitting Transmission.

    In Terminal:

    Code:
    killall Transmission
    I have found the killall command to be the best when quitting hanging apps. Plenty of other ways too though.

    Transmission can take 30 seconds or so to cleanly shut down. Best to close the app before restarting.

    Sometimes it won't quit for me either, so I've just used force quit (cmd-opt-esc). I've not had it do it on the latest version, though.

    Transmission does always take a while to shut down for me, too. It always does eventually quit, though.

    Otherwise, go to Apple menu > Force Quit.
