Try starting in Safe Mode and see if the problem occurs.
To start in Safe Mode, hold down the Shift key after you hear the startup chime. Startup will take a bit longer than usual, and you should see the words "Safe Mode" in red lettering at the login screen.

    Can you use the wireless after starting in Safe Mode or does the "Do you want to shut down?" message appear?


    Testing like this in Safe Mode helps to determine whether the auto shutdown is caused by the wireless or by something else.

Circle icon won't shut down apps on mac


We really need a little more info to answer this correctly. Which Circle Icon are you clicking to "shut down apps"?

In OSX, there are three circles or dots at the top-left of every active window. These are, starting at the left, Red: Close this window, Yellow: Hide this window, and Green: Maximize/Restore this window. Note that none of these Close or Quit the Application, only that particular window or instance of that app.

To actually Quit a particular application or program, you can use the keyboard command: Command-Q, or you can click the application menu and select Quit.

Delete page superimposed on my desk top home page


I'm assuming this is a Finder window. In Finder, press Apple-option-W just before you shut down the computer. This will close all Finder windows; they will should not open when you start up the computer unless they were open when you shut it down.
If it's not a Finder window, you will have to deal with whatever application is being told to run at startup. Without knowing what it is, I don't have enough information to tell you more, other than to suggest you go to your User Accounts in System Preferences, click the Login Items tab and either check the Hide box for that application, or remove it from the Login Items list.

How do you open the case to install RAM?


Instructional steps
  • RAM
  1. Determine what kind of RAM you need, and whether your computer has enough open slots to hold it. The new RAM should match the existing RAM's specifications and configuration.
  2. Shut down the computer and leave it plugged into the surge suppressor.
  3. install-ram-1.3-120x120.jpg Disconnect all peripheral devices, such as the monitor, from the computer.
  4. install-ram-1.4-120x120.jpg Remove the computer cover.
  5. Ground yourself to the computer with professional grounding equipment like an anti-static wristband or hold a metal part of the chassis.
  6. Remove any cards or internal components necessary to give yourself unobstructed access to RAM sockets.
  7. install-ram-1.7-120x120.jpg Pick up your SIMM (single in-line memory module) or DIMM (dual in-line memory module) by the ends without touching pins or chips.
  8. install-ram-1.8-120x120.jpg If adding a SIMM, find the notched end and turn the SIMM so that it is parallel to the existing RAM card(s). Insert the SIMM into the socket at a 30-degree angle. If adding a DIMM, insert the DIMM straight in so that it is perpendicular to the motherboard.
  9. Use slight pressure to keep a SIMM from backing out while rotating the module to an upright position perpendicular to the motherboard.
  10. Make sure the small holes on each side of a SIMM fit into holders
  11. install-ram-1.11-120x120.jpg Feel or hear retaining clips lock a SIMM into the socket; close the side clips on a DIMM.
  12. 1 Gently try to pull the module out to ensure it is locked in position.
  13. Replace all internal components.
  14. Leave the cover off and reconnect the monitor, keyboard and mouse.
  15. Turn on the computer.
  16. Check the amount of RAM by right-clicking the My Computer icon in Windows and choosing Properties. On a Mac, use the About this Macintosh command in the Apple menu.
  17. If you don't see the right amount of RAM, turn off the computer and try "reseating" the SIMM or DIMM (take it out and put is back in) and reboot. If that doesn't work, call a technician.
  18. Shut down the computer and disconnect the peripherals again.
  19. install-ram-1.19-120x120.jpg Replace the cover and reconnect all the peripherals.

MAC PRO dual2.3- freezes, gray screen crash, freeze with hi fan mode,kernel panic reports, all require start button shut down. Some forums suggest ATI card failure. I'm lost.


All computers will shut them selves off or crash when fans are failing, or have failed. Cooling fans are plugged into the motherboard, and firmware on the MB keeps track of the system fans, along with everything else. If a system fan is failing, or has failed, the signal is sent to shut down. Some PC's will shut down cleanly, others give error messages, and some just freeze up. Of course, Bad RAM, video cards, and hard drives with bad sectors, can also cause problems like you have discribed.
I would write down any error messages, and beep codes, and then look them up online for a place to start.

Mirror agent not responding, computer wont shut down


Hi, Sorry to hear your having problems,
Well, it would appear that this is in fact related to your iDisk.
Apple says to close all windows until you see the iDisk error mesage, click OK then try loging out or shutting down.
Mirroragent takes care of backing up your data to the iDisk.
The quick and dirty method to get rid of this is to open the Activity Monitor application and select Show All Processes search for mirroragent and force it to quit.
Once quit, you're free to do what you will...
Ejecting the iDisk might cause this problem again, I recommend not worrying about ejecting your iDisk unless you really don't want to see it.... Restart, logout or shutdown with the iDisk connected and it will disconnect all by itself.
