Hey guys, as I've just asked my MacBook won't shut down


Apps close, the dock hides like normal and the wallpaper fades into a light blue colour. But from here it is stuck. A little wheel animation thing appears similar to the one at start up and stays there. From here to shut it down I have to hold down the power button for a while to force a shut down.


I've already repaired and repaired the permissions of my hard drive by booting up using the OS X DVD and using Disc Utility.


Any idea how to fix this? Any help would be greatly appreciated

Macbook 7,1, None
