Shutting down query

When I shut down my PC (Windows XP Home Sp2), I noiced tha whilst the screen switched off, the disk drive was still indicating shutting down. It eventually stopped and I presumed closed down properly. Anyone experienced this?

It's a fairly common occurence, nothing to be concerned about.

This usually takes longer if there is a large number of background processes running. Just as a comparison, you'll probably find that shut-down is quicker in safe mode.

Many thanks, he said, breathing a sigh of relief!
