Thread: G4 Will Not Shutdown Properly
09-25-2003, 07:55 AM #1mididadGuestG4 Will Not Shutdown Properly
I have just initialized my hard disk, on my Mac G4 OS 9.2.1, cleaned it up, installed Norton Utilities and re-installed all my other apps and the blessed thing is not cooperating even after examining and defraging it with Norton Utilities. There is no indication that anything is wrong with the disk according to the report I get from Norton Utilities. WHEN I SHUT IT DOWN, PROPERLY, IT RESTARTS AUTOMATICALLY. IT WONT STAY SHUT DOWN! WHY? WHY? WHY? Can someone please help me? : :eek:

I never experience this problem, so here is my guess. Is your software up to date?

I do run regular maintenance with Norton Utilities as well as trying to update my software. So, the problem, though inconsistant, is persistant and rather irritating but thanks for your initial attempt to help me.

LOL. Mr MacAddikt. so formal
Maybe its something with norton. i never use it on my mac, its kinda pointless. however, on my windows machine at work, sometimes it requires a restart to put the changes into effect. so maybe theres a preference somewhere in norton where it needs to restart or something? not sure where it could be, like i said, i dont have norton for my mac
ps. the Disk Utility application comes with all macs. Its Under your Applications folder, in another folder called Utilities.

Plus nortons has been known to cause havoc to people's systems.. I would probably discontinue use.. just to be safe..---> Join the Mac-Forums Folding team: use 37954 as your team number.
