Hey guys,


since I cannot find a solution to my problem anywhere, I think it is time once again to start a thread and ask you.


As the title says, Mavericks won't shut down completely. It just gets to the point where my screens have turned off, but fans, blu-ray drive, etc. are still running, forcing me to manually hit the power button for 4 seconds.


Interestingly restart works just fine (restart fix is applied, but I think it would even work without).

Also my shutdown log is apparently ok.


Your help would be greatly appreciated!

If we know your specs it would be more helpful. Sounds like you need a DSDT patch for shutdown.
