I got this Vista shutdown error today...

I came back from a short trip today to find my laptop still running for some reason, even though I clicked on shutdown button before leaving. It looks like you have to babysit Vista while it's trying to shutdown or else it may get confused by the log-off sound and won't shutdown.

    Yeah, it seems to do that when you have a longer logoff sound. If the logoff sound takes longer than 5 secs then it does that. It happens to me because my logoff sound is 7 secs. Bit dumb tho...
