No phsically shutdown since bitlocker encryption?

Since I have encrypted my computer (2HDDs) with bitlocker I cannot perform a total shutdown including the pysical break from power. After a few seconds I get a black screen and the shutdown process stops. To end the session I must push the button of my laptop for a few seconds. Is there a way around to shutdown the computer without using the hardware?

My system: CPU 3,02GByte
2 HDDs encrypted with bitlocker
