Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
Just about any system can be forced to shut down by holding the Power key/button for at least 5 seconds, some may require 10.
This is not a good way to stop a system since stupid Windows has to unload in an organized manner or it can get hopelessly confused.
You might try running the Restore routine and back-date your system to an earlier day:
Open the Start menu, click on Run, enter "rstrui.exe" (no quotes) and click OK to start.
You should get a calendar showing which past days are available to run.
You won't lose any of your work but any updates installed since that past day are null and void so you may get messages from your AV program or from Win itself.

It's usually caused by the Voltage-Regulator sub-board that is faulty M700/M300 - same problem. If the VR sub-board is replaced and problem still exists, mobo is faulty.

SOURCE: laptop locks up during shut down
Some computers do not work well using their "Sleep" settings. You might like to try seeing if your computer manufacturer has some new drivers available to address that problem. Barring that, just use hibernate instead of sleep during the day, and use Shutdown at the end of the day - this also ensures that your computer will update itself regularly. Not sure if that will help. Would love to know if this problem has been solved.
