You can try holding the power button in for at least 10 seconds or more until the computer shuts off.

Well,first you have to check the functionality of the on/off button conected on the is possible the button remain stuck
if the problem is happening after closing the operating sistem,without touching the buton,well this must be solved by reinstaling the operating sistem ex:windows.
it can be also  a short circuit on the mainboard..but a small probability..
good luck
thanks for rating this answer

Cant log in ; computewr will not run

Shut your computer down and turn it back on (not restart, turn it off) while its coming on, rapidly hit the F8 button until the black screen with the white font appears. Stop hitting F8, and select Safe Mode. The computer will start up with the minimal functions to operate. Now, run your antivirus program, what ever it may be. When it's done, shut the computer off and turn it back on, unless the computer tells you to restart. Then try to log in again.

My dell inspiron 1545 won't shut down went i click on the shut down icon it won't turn off .

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.

My plasma turns itself off for about 10 20 mins

It seems that your unit has some sort of Thermal PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. After it shuts down and the faulty component(s) cool down, it restarts again until it once again goes critical and shuts down again only to repeat the cyle.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.
