I have posted about this problem earlier, but wanted to include the data from the logs.

I would like to be able to run TimeMachine on-demand (manually). I want to start a backup and when it finishes turn off TM. However, TM stops and just few minutes later starts up again for what seems to be a very long time. I have copied the backup data from the system log and posted it below. Unless I just sit and watch it continuously I do not see it complete.

Further, why is it taking so long to complete such small backups? I have spent 2 days on this without success.

I have tried two USB powered Hard Drives (one with an external A/C adapter, the other bus powered).

Do I need to call customer support?

Can someone please tell me if what is happening is normal or do I have a problem with my system?

Thanks, Mike

go into time machine settings and turn it off,
make sure "show in menu bar" is ticked,
then go to the menu bar you can just click "back up now"

i hope this is what you were talking about

I finally had to do a Lion restore to get it to work. It now works correctly.
