I don't know the answer to your question but a little bit of advice and info.
So far I have just been shutting it down by keeping the power button pressed and restarting my >computer. Is this bad for my computer? Is there any other way I can do this without harming my >computer?
Very bad for your Mac, or any Computer. When you do this you don't give the system time to do it's magic and make sure it is safe to. Always press the Apple logo in the top menu bar and then Shut Down when you want to shut down.
I suppose I should have clarified. I only resort to shutting my computer down by holding the power button when it freezes. When this happens I have no way to control my computer at all no matter how long I wait for it to do anything. The screen remains black. I figured my only options were to either hold the power button or take out the battery and then restart it.
