If you run:

sudo shutdown -h now

Does it die?

Hi,

are you sure, that you press button "Shut down computer" in your menu bar? If not this will be problem. Anyway, you can still shut down your computer by running simple command in terminal which you can acess by typing CTRL + ALT + T. In terminal type: sudo shutdown -h now and your computer should shut down imediatly.

If this helps you solve your question, please mark thread as solved.

Regards,
Miha
