What shutdowns close

Message #1 - Posted 2013/02/18 - Howard Brazee

When I shut down my computer, I get a window listing some applications that shut down. It usually only flashes, but occasionally lasts long enough to read them all.

One application that appears to shut down is "Cyroburn CD". That is the name of a CD I have somewhere that came with a book I bought a couple of years ago and haven't put in my iMac since then.

I looked for Cyroburn (with some caps changing options) in my console, but didn't find it.

Where can I find a list of what these are - and why Cyroburn CD is listed there?

Could it be a disk image you had mounted?

It could be. But Spotlight doesn't find it. I tried the Unix find command but may have done it wrong.

Anybody who agrees with one side all of the time or disagrees with the other side all of the time is equally guilty of letting others do their thinking for them.

That depends on what you are searching for, doesn't it? Disk image filenames are often *not* the same as the name you see on your desktop or in Finder windows when the volume is mounted.

That's what I thought - so I came here to get advice.

Well this "window listing some applications that shut down" is a little confusing. A screen shot or a better description would be helpful.

It would be nice to be able to capture the window that flashes for a moment as my computer shuts down. I tried a couple of times without luck.

Would a Spotlight search for .img, .dmg, .cdr, .iso, and whatever other disk image suffixes there are turn up your hypothetical mounted image?

Typing "mount" in a Terminal window and return will list everything that is mounted, including stuff that Disk Utility doesn't show. The output looks like:

/dev/disk0s2 on / (hfs, local, journaled)
devfs on /dev (devfs, local, nobrowse)
map -hosts on /net (autofs, nosuid, automounted, nobrowse) map auto_home on /home (autofs, automounted, nobrowse) /dev/disk1s2 on /Volumes/Rikiki (hfs, local, nodev, nosuid, journaled) /dev/disk2s2 on /Volumes/globalSAN-5.1.0 (hfs, local, nodev, nosuid, read-only, noowners, quarantine, mounted by cjr)

It won't help you find the disk image, but it will tell you if it is indeed something mounted.

And you just didn't, did you?
