|lenville, can't tell you why it's doing that, but FWIW, Windows seems to have had shutdown problems since release. I use a standalone proggie for shutdown and have placed an icon shortcut to it in my quicklauch (for convenience). It's called 'Slawdog' and they claim it works with all versions of Windows. Know it works with XP Pro 3 'cuz that's what I run. Get it free @:|
Maybe give it a try?
