The shut off valve depends upon where your plumber fitted it and whether one was installed at all. If there's not one near the cistern then you'll need to find the stop valve which is on either the main household cold water tank outlet or if the cistern is filled directly by mains water then you'll need to turn off the main supply valve or even the valve in the street.
The fault is caused by a failed syphon assembly inside the cistern. Although it's possible to remove the faulty part and replace it the sheer number of different syphon assembly designs and the age of many of them usually mean that it's quicker and simpler to replace the entire assembly. Without knowing exactly which make and model of syphon you have it's impossible to give you any more specific details as the operating methods vary so widely, but if you're mechanically minded then you may well find that you can dismantle the old syphon and locate the failed seal. Sometimes all you need to repair them is an old car tyre inner tube and a pair of scissors. A repair often costs pennies and takes hours, a complete replacement syphon assembly often costs between £13 and £60 depending on the model and design (plus labour) but usually takes no more than around fifteen to twenty minutes to replace if the cistern is close-coupled to the toilet and a bit longer if it's an old-fashioned high level cistern with restricted access.
Given the need for guesswork based on the limited details in your question I hope that you appreciate my reply and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Testimonial: "thanks for the fast reply and solution"
Hi I have exactly the same problem, in fact it could have been me writing this - 3 toliets fine, main bathroom hisses. The Geberit flushing ciphen on the left (the smaller one) has been replaced and there is still a problem. If you look carefully,the water level needs to come up over the lip of an opening on the Geberit part and this causes the valve mechanism to shut off and stop the hissing. It is fine for about 40 minutes and then the hissing starts again if you don't flush it. The reason is that the water level has gone down but there is no obvious signs of where the water is going. It could be that the central flush mechanism is leaking slightly. I am going to replace this part next. If I were you I'd see if you are getting any water leakage into the pan when toilet not in use to see if the water level in the cistern is going down James T

I have the same problem and can not find a solution. The toilet flushes fine but then a delay in filling up the tank occurs. Is there a part I can replace? Does something need to be cleaned or cleared?

SOURCE: cannot remove top of cistern
There are some dual flush cisterns where you have to depress one button to reveal a cavity in the second button. Put a screwdriver in that cavity to lever out the second button, then release the first button and prise that out.
Underneath the buttons is a screw which must be unscrewed to release the cistern lid.
Not sure if this will apply to you... but if not, good luck anyway.

Waste pipe problems aside, if its a dual flush check you are actually working the full flush button and that the mechanism is working properly and not stuck operating only the half flush. If then you look in the tank both the total water level in the tank (white screw at the filling valve) and the quantity of water let go for each full and half flush (blue parts below, in the flush mechanism) can be set to different levels. Yours might be set to the minimum
