Do you get any messages on the screen when attempting to shut down?

Does it power up only when depressing the On switch?

Have you tried just pressing the power button for about 15 seconds and allowing it to power down? Sounds like you are letting it sleep or hibernate....

i don't get any messages, i press power button for 2 mins still don't switch off, only the screen but the laptop is still running, the only way it will go off is to take power lead out and battery.

Try running CAT.exe Tool from this link, it may help:

Run it, on the first window select "Adjustments" on the lefthand side.
Check mark "Fix Shutdown" and the click the "Apply Checked Fixes" button.

Try going to the Acer site and see if they have a forum there. Possible this is a known issue.
