Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds and then release it. This will shutdown the laptop regardless of what state it is in. If it still doesn't shutdown then disconnect the laptop from the powersupply and remove the battery. Note that this will count as an improper shutdown. After it shuts don put the battery back in and you should be able to power it up.

if you have a program running that is non responsive and try to shut down or restart, the computer will get stuck on the logging off screen.
Often times if a computer takes a long time to do anything, it means you need to defrag your hard drive. Manually shut down the computer (you might have been pushing the Sleep button. If you can't figure it out, just unplug it and let the battery run down.) and when you restart it, go to the My Computer or Computer option, right click on your C drive, click on properties and a window should pop up. Click on the tab that says Tools and click on the Defragmentation option. The rest should be pretty self-explanatory.If nothing works.
please try logging in as administrator in safe mode and doing a system restore.... please see Using Windows Vista System Restore :: the How-To Geek
Press F8 to go to Safe mode, open SYSTEM RESTORE to go back to checkpoint where not yet updated the system. And next time to open back your system normally finished all updates before you shut down. Good luck!
