Shutdown Bug

Issue #49 new
james doviak created an issue

Some bug reporting for you here. I'm on a Macbook pro late 2013, OS 10.9.5 and running GecoMidi 1.3.0. After running a session with Logic 9.1.3 a few times after quitting Geco, the app is gone from the activity monitor, but the icon still shows up when toggling through applications and it seems to prevent shutdown and /or logouts too, requiring a manual computer shutdown holding the power key down. If i pull up the force quit window Geco shows up there but I am unable to quit it. It is as if some small part of the program is still being seen as running after the main part has quit. After a restart and just loading up Geco it's no problem and will quit as normal. I haven't figured out yet if the problem is related to some interaction with Logic but will experiment further.

    I'm having the same problem, and I have a similar setup. Macbook Pro 10.9.5. Pro Tools. Leap Motion. I was running GecoMIDI 1.2.4, and I've just tried updating to 1.3.0

    Same exact complaint as the user above. Except that when I restart the computer after a manual shutdown, Geco is still in that "limbo" state; perhaps because I have a computer start default of opening apps that were open upon shutdown.

    Any resolve on this?

    Has this issue ever been resolved? I see these posts are from a year ago. . . I have a 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 iMac 10.9.5. GecoMidi 1.3.0. Plugged it in and did the 'pick the flower petal' app. Tried to quit the program, GecoMidi won't close. When I try to re-open it after re-starting, I get a "The application can't be opened. -600" message. No other apps are open. Computer won't shut down unless manually holding down the power key.

    Please tell me that after a year, there was a fix on this? Thanks,

    Sadly not aware of any resolution, although I haven't used the app for a year and I believe there is an update, but whether it makes a difference I can't say!

    Sadly we're not able to reproduce this. We're working on a minor update that has some small stability improvements. Hopefully this will fix this issue.

    same problem another year later. its annoying to shut down the Mac manually and i bet its not good too but i found no workaround than deleting and reinstalling GECO.
