Hello Community,


since several months I have a problem with my iMac running on OS X Lion. The computer does not shut down!!! When trying this, it seems to work normal until the grey screen appears with the rotating circle in the middle. This status remains and remains and remains and remains...... The only thing to shut the computer down is then the "hardware shut down" by the power switch. Certainly not menat to be. The strange thing is, that even a Restart after software updates does not run through as it should, it also is hanging at this point....


I have tried almost everything which I could find on user boards: SMC reset, harddisk repair, even OS X Lion reinstallation - nothing solved the issue.


Anybody around here with a brilliant idea?





iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
