Just realized I had an external drive connected (thought I'd pulled them all out, but one was still attached). Of course, this one drive is what's causing my system to hang. I'll deal with that in a new thread though...

I'm having similar problem after upgrade on my imac. Hangs with white screen after logging out. Have to press/hold pwr button to shut off, then press to turn on.
I have a LaCie porsche ext hard drive attached by usb. Should I unplug this and try reinstalling mavericks? I didn't remove ext hd during the upgrade, was I supposed too?

Try unmounting you LaCie drive, then try and restart. If that works, then you have the same problem as me. I haven't found a solution yet, so I'm just writing a shutdown/restart script that will first unmount the drive, then shutdown/restart.

OK. Ejected and unplugged Ext HD. No freezes so far after logging out.
If I avoid freezes, do you think I can just plug the Ext HD in once a week or so and do a backup manually, then remove it again, until Apple comes up with a solution/patch/fix?
Thanks for your help.

Yep, that'd work fine. I need access to my drive constantly, so I just unmount it manually before restarting. If it's not fixed in the first 10.9.1 update, then I'll write a script to do it automatically. So, we'll see...
