Shutdown issues are primarily caused by a hung application refusing to exit.
To isolate this, try closing every open program (both on the TaskBar and in the System Tray (Notification Area by the clock).

If it shuts down without complaint, then it's one of those programs doing it.

I was having this problem with my m-audio soundcard not ending the service on shutdown, which meant that the computer would not close down without pressing the power button.

1) Create a .bat file (create txt file and change extention to .bat)
2) Right Click on file > "edit" and enter following info:
net stop "Audiosrv"
net stop "AudioEndpointBuilder"
3) Save file as "Audio stop"(or whatever you want) to your main drive ie: C:\Audio stop
4) Open "run" from start menu and enter "gpedit.msc" (without quotes) and hit "OK"
5) Now navigate from right pain of window "User Configuration" > "Windows Settings" > "scripts (Logon/Logoff)" > "Logoff"
6) From window that opens from clicking "Logoff" Click "Add" then browse to where you saved "Audio Stop.bat" earlier and double click on it.
7) Hit "Apply" and close.


There's the solution for mine.

Note. I didn't write that, It's copy/pasted, but it worked for me.

Seen this same thing in a different forum. The kid fixed it by going to performance and tools and then advanced settings, he claims that there it showed him which file was causing the error which was a driver file for his audio card, the same one you have. He said he diabled it in msconfig and it worked fine. I don't know what he turned off by disableing it but he never came back with an issue of the turn off. Hope this helps.

Try going to Device Manager, and for the various devices you find whose Properties contain the "Power Management" tab, UN-CHECK the option on that tab which "allows windows to power off the device to save power".

You might find this on a sound card (e.g. M-audio) or IEEE 1394 controller or LAN network adapter or USB Root Hub device, etc.

In my case, UN-CHECKING this option on my eight USB Root Hub devices did the trick. Windows now shuts down normally.

This could be a Win7 bug, or it might be a BIOS setting that should be changed to be compatible with Win7. But I never had a problem with WinXP Pro... only Win7 Pro.

Anyway, UN-CHECKING for my USB Root Hub devices eliminated the problem for me.

YMMV.
