iMac w/10.6.8, fresh install on an SSD.
I've been booting back and forth from XP to 10.6, and lately my iMac has been hanging while shutting down or restarting while booted into OSX. All open apps will close but then the cursor just sits in my desktop and nothing happens for long periods of time. Pressing the power button just sleeps the machine, so I've resorted to sleeping and pulling the plug a few times. This last time upon firing the machine back up the fans kicked in at full bore, like I've never heard before, I quickly shut the machine down.
Boots great into OSX, lightning fast on the SSD, but this new behavior is worrying. Is this something a simply disk permission error could cause?
