Question about Computers & Internet
What you are experiencing seems to be high memory usage. In so, your computer is slowing itself down with the amount of processes it is running.
If this is a older computer, this is understandable as newer programs need more memory.
When you try to switch the computer off, it seems as if it is lagging therefore it isn't quite registering the fact that you want it to turn off.
If you really want to turn it off for good, you can always hold the power button until it turns off. A quick tap will not suffice.
Get a new computer
Upgrade your laptop - try investing in RAM, or a new CPU (A typical computer can run quickly w/ 2gbs of RAM)
Limit the amount of processes/programs you run at a time.
If this isn't the reason, you may have a virus that may be eating all your memory.
Solution: Download and run Malwarebytes Anti Malware. Scan and then remove the virus/bugs/worms that may be present.

Hi Shannon Turner - Try reprogramming the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, the range could possibly have a faulty element(s), wiring failure, or a communication error with the EOC. Connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues if issue continues.
