    i searched but cud not find a suitable answer......
    no the pc just hangs on clicking any of the following shutdown/restart/hibernate/standby.....

    and for the waiting thing i waited 1ce 4 i think half an hour but nothin happens thus confirming my pc's inability to shutdown itself.....

    God knows if we humans are not out there these stupid machines cant even shutdown themselves.......

    possibly one of ur services is not shutting down properly.
    anyway here a way to reduce your shutdown time.

    run Regedit.
    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control.
    Click on the "Control" Folder.
    Select "WaitToKillServiceTimeout"
    Right click on it and select Modify.
    the default value is ( i think) 6000.
    Set it a lower value, say 1000.

    Remove your RAM cards and fit them back. Make sure that if you have installed any new software or hardware, thne remove them and try again. Clean your system with a good anti-virus and a spyware program. Re-install and check, if it still does not work them get your hardware checked.
