Can you shut down the machine through the terminal using this command:

sudo shutdown –h now

It may prompt you for confirmation after putting this command in, but it may work.

If you're wanting to put it into a script that you can run without having to remember the command:

echo "#!/bin/bash" > shutdown.sh
echo "shutdown -h now" >> shutdown.sh
chmod 777 shutdown.sh

To call that script:

sudo ./shutdown.sh

The script seemed to work, but sadly exactly the same result. The machine seems to shutdown but actually reboots. An extremely annoying bug since I manager this machine headless via my iOS devices.

Okay so I may have found the answer from insanelymac regarding the same issue with Yosemite (which seems to be an issue with Clover bootloader and the motherboard being used)

You can try this setings

<key>Fixes</key>
<dict>
        <key>FixShutdown_0004</key>
        <true/>
</dict>

or

<key>SlpSmiAtWake</key>
<true>

It adds SLP_SMI_EN=0 at every wake. It may help solve sleep and shutdown issues on UEFI boot.

Those settings have to be added to your /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist file if they're not already in there.

I haven't tested these since Yosemite doesn't seem to have shutdown issues, but some members on that thread were saying that adding one of those settings to their config.plist file helped with their power issue.

thanks for your reply!! Sadly my machine has a bios & this setting is not applicable as far as I know. Any other suggestions would be welcome!!

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
