    Hello,
    first verify disk permissions and repair disk using disk utility option in mac..
    to do this first open disk utility, then select your drive from the left corner of the disk utility option then first click repair disk after completion of the process then click repair disk permissions...
    another option is to delete the following:
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.db
    but this will reset your dock to default mode..


    if this not work then i would recommend doing a clean install of the OS..

    Dear Friend ...

    Shutdown issue occurs when your system these kinds of issues which are as follows:-

    1. System hang and slow issue
    2. Mac OS corrupts
    3. Viruses in your device

    But there are various solution for these problems.
    Follow these steps:-

    1. Many a times, when OS gets older, it runs with so many temp files which comes after installing so many apps and software's. All these files stored in temp folder name which stored in your Mac OS C-Drive.
    For find this folder, just go to your search menu and type %temp% and press enter. When you get this folder, delete from the C-Drive and refresh your system. Now try to shut down your device,

    2. If the problem still continues, then Might be the OS of your device gets corrupt due to which some of your OS features stop working. To overcome this issue, just either go for a recovery of your OS or make a fresh Mac OS installation.

    3. The last and final option to solve this issue that check your device with an anti-virus and if you find any kind of virus in your device, then just scan your device and quarantine all of them.

    These are the possible solution for the problems.
    Hope you get it,

    Dear Friend..

    There is no to worry about this.
    First you clear all the temp files from your Mac C Drive TEMP Folders because this is the main cause of this problem.

    After doing this, if the problem not solved, then there is a need to delete these two files:-
    @ Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist
    @ Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.db


    When you delete these files, shutdown your PC in safemode and it will works fine now.

    Hope this help you.
    Thanks..
