I recently upgraded my MacBook Pro from 10.6.8 to 10.7 (and now 7.1 & 7.2).
Ever since the switch to Lion my Mac has a kernel panic at shutdown and I get the "You need to restart your computer" error message.
I've reset the PRAM and SMC but that made no difference. Booting in safe mode didn't help either. I also unplugged everything from the Mac (monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc.) but it still kernel panics.
How can I prevent this shut down kernel panic?
