I've got a compaq M700 which won't close down. If you have only been using it for 15 minutes or so then it will close down OK. Any longer than that then you have to pull out the power lead or take out the battery.

Any help / advice would be appreciated.

What is your operating system?

There are lots of shutdown issues with various versions of windows.

First of all check what is running when the shutdown process stalls using the task manager i.e. press ctrl-alt-del
