Mac does not switch off. Any idea how to fix this?

Advertisement

I already  repaired the rights on the disk....
Mac does not drive down, obviously after certain programs have been started. One of those programs is itunes. I have to use the power switch button for switching it off. Mac can be driven down normally immediately after start-up.....Any idea what to do?

Yes, this was exactly the sequence and again it worked...
Here is the result of the ps ax command:
