I have several Mac's that when selecting restart they shutdown instead. (MacBookPro 15 SSD, MacBookAir(new), MacBookPro 15) By that I mean, if I select from the menu restart they shutdown and do not turn back on. The only thing I can think of in common about them is that they have FileVault setup and all have Mavericks installed.
What step can I take to figure out how to change the setups so that restart works to actually bring back the system to a running state?
I am very comfortable with terminal, editing files. I took a look at pmset and don't see anything there. I tried $ sudo shutdonw -r now Same result, turns off stays off.
File vault was setup after initial computer setup. I had to enter the password for each user when I turned on FileVault and I saved the key. I have other computer with fileVault setup "i think" the same. I did it on each of them and they work fine.
