there are programs that are hanging on in the system you can bypass this by
shutdown.exe -s -t 00 -f
-s = shutdown
-r = restart
-m \\computer name = remote pc
-t xx = the amount of time before pc will beging shutdown
-f = force the apps to shutdown
you can put this command in a shortcut
"shutdown.exe -s -t 01 -f"
and to shutdown the pc just click the short cut

Also check for malware and do sfc /scannow from the command prompt to restore any corrupt system files.
