Hi! Being a new mini user, I'm quickly finding fellow mac users in Thailand Smile so...this post is on behalf of a friend who does not speak English very well...

One annoyance he's had is he'll go to shut down his iBook and close his lid and the iBook will go to sleep instead of completing the shutdown process.

Is there anyway to get around this behaviour?

Why doesn´t he just let the system shut down properly before closing the lid?

Actually - it's the principle that confuses him...why does a sleep/suspend operation interfere with a shutdown process?

I agree.

When you're done with your laptop, why should you have to wait for it to shutdown before you close the cover?

Sleeping in the middle of shutdown is crazy. Very Happy

Try to change the settings for what happens when you close the lid. Change it to do nothing when lid is closed.

Be realistic you told it to shut down and then in the middle of doing so you told it to go to sleep.

I actually don't know if it is iBook-specific - I used to have an old Thinkpad before my mini and actually don't recall if Windoze ever had this kind of behaviour...I don't think so but I could be wrong!
