    Hello Fred and welcome to the forum.
    Have you tried right clicking the Windows Logo (bottom left of screen) and choosing the shut down command from there?
    Does that work?
    Have you tried from an elevated command prompt typing
    shutdown /s /t 0
    does that work?

    Sometimes it works right and shuts down quickly - other times it hangs in sleep mode and I have to unplug ... can't figure it out
