Using MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard. Itunes has recently starting misbehaving:



I close iTunes using the 'X', then click on 'Itunes' at the top of my screen and select 'Quit Itunes'. I see a progress bar saying 'Saving Itunes..' then it closes.


Couple of seconds go by and Itunes reopens!


I have to repeat the process maybe 5 or 6 times for it to stop!


If I try to 'Shut Down' this gets stopped by 'Itunes'!



If I delete any playlists (right-click on playlist and select delete) from Itunes and then reimport the library, all the playlists reappear.


How to permamently delete playlists?

MacBook Pro (13-inch Mid 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Try closing iTunes by selecting close iTunes from menu missing out first step.


    What do you mean reimport library? Why do you need to reimport library.


    Launching iTunes should open last save library.

    This is happening to me too. It's very annoying, i can't close itunes no matter how many times i close it. There must be a solution for this.

    These 2 ppl also have the same issue:
