In your case,

the most simplest way to shut down your laptop is to override your processing by simply holding down the shutdown button until your computer turns off (do this when all your work is saved and the "Windows is shutting down" mode is on your screen).

This idea is not recommended but will always work.




Hope I helped

Thinkpad hungup on shutting down


Pull the AC plug, remove battery. You may want to do a System clean-up. I assume you have Windows 7? Use two freeware programs to assist you. 1, CCLEANER: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ This freeware program will clean the junk from your machine, in the TOOLS section, select STARTUP, disable ALL unnecessary startup programs, this will speedup starts, shutdowns and running. 2, MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version, run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot. Here are more tips to speedup Windows 7: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10things/10-ways-to-speed-up-windows-7/3332

My Lenovo Thinkpad T60 Won't load pass thinkpad Logo. I can't access Bios and ThinkVantage button is useless PLEASE HELP!


A burning smell is a good indication that some component burnt up. Could be a fan and that would cause it to shut down. If it's hung on the logo I would start by removing the memory, hard drive and optical drive and see if it boots past the logo. If it does then power down and add one item back in and test again until you find the bad part. Can you hear the fan spinning when you power it on?

Computer Shut Down Problem


Is the computer taking forever to shutdown in the blue screen or is it something else. Perhaps try closing the applications running with the system to help the process speed up and actually work without the usage of the power button.

Ibm thinkpad will shut down after running fine


its a silly question but are the vents on the sides and underside of the laptop unobstructed. ie dont use it on a bed or any non flat surface. Try this and see if your problem ceases

Computer is hung up in a loop and can't restart.


Start the computer using the last known good configuration I copied this from WinXP Help and Support you should be able to restore your system. If this don't help you will have to run windows setup and repair or install. mysleuth



To start the computer using the last known good configuration
  1. Print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut down your computer in step 2.
  2. Click Start, click Shut Down, and then, in the drop-down list, click Shut down.
  3. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
  4. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
  5. Use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
  6. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.
note.gif Notes
  • Choosing Last Known Good Configuration provides a way to recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware. It does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.
  • When you choose Last Known Good Configuration, only the information in registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet is restored. Any changes you have made in other registry keys remain.
  • NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function

IBM Think Pad T22 auto -shut down a few minutes


Try running it without the battery. Sometimes an IBM battery can develop a short and cause this. If it still does it without the battery, I'm afraid it's the power management chip on the motherboard, and the motherboard will need to be replaced.
