Hi All,

I have a system with all SATA hard drives and SATA DVD drive (no IDE).
P5Qc motherboard with 4gigs
Quad Q8200 CPU
Nvidia GeForce 9500GT
Realtek 8169 PCI ethernet board

I've attached a startup listing from my machine here: Attached File  system.log.rtf   13.89KB   26 downloads

I followed the directions in the P5Q motherboard thread -- installed IDENEB 1.4 and then I installed 10.5.4 retail and updated to 10.5.6 and then ran software update.

Ethernet and ALC1200 audio work great. The Nvidia card works fine. All four processors are being used (though "about this mac" still says "3.8 ghz unknown").

The only problem left is with restart and shutdown. The problem is the
same with IDENEB 1.4 as it is with the latest 10.5.6 retail (I have both partitions available).

I tried installing the v1.03 openhaltrestart.kext but it didn't
change anything on either IDENEB or retail version. It is still installed.

Note that I am booting the system from a syslinux USB keychain
from which I then select the MacOSX retail or IDENEB partition.

SHUTDOWN:
When I shutdown from MacOSX 10.5.6, the text (-v) shows it halts without errors but then the screen goes black and the system is still on.

RESTART:
When I select restart from MacOSX 10.5.6, if the USB keychain
has been removed, the system appears to halt -- the text (-v) shows it halts without error --
but then it sits there, with the fans on and with a black screen.

When I select restart from MacOSX 10.5.6, if the USB keychain
has NOT been removed, the system appears to halt -- the text (-v) shows it halts without error --
and then it sits there for 1.5 minutes with a black screen and then restarts. It seems like a timeout of some sort has occurred (just a guess).

SLEEP:
Sleep works great except if there is a USB keychain drive in the system -- then it won't sleep.

In the BIOS, I have the USB settings like this:

Though I have also set the legacy USB to "auto" and it didn't change anything.

Any ideas?

slimandslam, did you solve that issue? I am having the same on a Snow Leopard installation.

Thanks a lot.

Gents,

for the reboot/shutdown I used OpenHaltRestart x64 and it worked.
Attaching here for anyone else that might need it.

I am still working on the sleep issue.

Cheers,
ZetaGi
