press Ctrl + alt+del and see what processes you have running, try closing some down, look in the task bar as well as you may have something like peerguardian which require the program to be closed before shut down, run a virus scan as well.

also use what blackjack said and close it down if it need to be, also you can set the power down feature under power options , its somewhere in control panel and it will allow you to set a key for stand by, power down, and restart.

-cheers!
