TL-WN725N (RTL8188CUS) freezes system when Rebooting/Shutdown

I currently have a TP Link TL-WN725N V1 which uses chipset Realtek RTL8188CUS. I've downloaded the Mac Drivers for this device from the Realtek website and the device works great! The issue I've come across is however that the device prevents my Hackintosh from Reboots and/or shutting down without freezing.


When rebooting or shutting down, I get the usual terminal messages saying everything is being closed and unmounted, and then it *sounds* like my PC is about to reboot, but instead my screens go dead. Same thing happens when I'm about to shutdown.


I've rebooted/shutdown without the device plugged in, and works perfectly. If I pull the device out when using my system, the entire system locks up. 


Here's my specs if needed.



CPU: I7 4770

Mem: Mushkin 2x8GB

SSD: ADATA sx900 128GB

GPU: Asus GTX 760 2GB 


Any help is appreciated!
