System shutdown false (what is it?)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


when I start my snow leopard in verbose mode I read two lines that says


system shutdown false

previous shutdown cause: 3


anyone know what are they?

someone says that they depends on a system shutdown problem, but when I look at Console there are no issues about the shutdown process.


they take about 10 seconds in my SL startup and I would like to know if there is a way to fix them, so that they not appear anymore.


thanks in advance and please sorry for my bad english

We get these lines also on realmacs, so it' not an issue.



system shutdown false- system startup,

system shutdown true- system restart/shutdown.


previous shutdown cause: 3- number of previous shutdown(on hacks is fixed, because we don't have EFI)
