Mac Pro 2008 does not shut down with Mavericks

Posted on Nov 19, 2013 4:33 AM, Apple Support Communities - Mac Pro | discussions.apple.com

Hi, I've got a 2008 Mac Pro.

Recently I've upgraded to Mavericks and everything seems to work fine except for the fact that when I try to shut down the Mac it doesn't shut down but it automatically restart.

The only way I've found to shut it down is to put it in sleep mode and then keep the button pressed until it shuts down but I don't want to do this every time I have to shut it down!!!

 

Can you help me solve this please?

Is it a system bug?

 

Thank you very much

 

Diego
