Hi Folks - Cant get my Macbook Pro to shut down (instead it does a re-start) thus the key combination for these re-sets doesnt seem to function (no chimes). I saw in another thread a terminal command entry "sudo nvram boot-args=”-p -r” but I also saw it mentioned that entering that casued the following to pop-up "Note that resetting the PRAM will wipe out the contents of the boot-args environment variable, which means the command would need to be reissued each startup." Whats with "reissued each startup"? Also would like a an SMC re-set command. THANKS in advance!
