    Hello folks,

    The last few times I have restarted my mac have always resulted in a message that says something like "The boot caches need to be _____ (forgot the action) before your computer shuts down". I simply click okay but the whole process seems to take forever. (My MBP does not shut down)

    Do I simply have to wait longer? (e.g. leave my MBP on overnight) I end up pressing the power button to force shut down it instead and my MBP restarts and boots up with no problem.

    I have already verified both my disk and disk permissions.

    Any ideas? Thank you.

    Update: The same message appeared again but only for a few seconds this time. Hope my OS is back to normal.
