If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.
Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.
On your Desktop, Right Click the mouse and Select Properties.
Click Screen Saver tab and Select Power. Change Turn Off Monitor

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.
Hi, You will need to enable the Advance power management in Bios and on windows.. Try to see in the bios the advance setting for APM. Some motherboard you have to enable this. Other its simply on windows. After the installation of windows Go >Right click desktop>properties>then select screen saver tab>below click power> Then click APM tab enable and restart May be this can solve this issues. Or else I would advice to change the power supply and see. Regards uttam
Go to the tech support site of the manufacturer of your laptop, search your model, and find appropriate drivers for your laptop. Some things may not have installed corrected (or at all) when you updated to Windows 7 from Vista.
it is the problem your computer operating system or motherboard bios setup problem . You restart your pc after restart then press dell key then prevew your bios setup option then choice bios defalt setup then press F10 press Y restart your pc .
the power is supposed to stay on when that little plastic button is pressed(screen switch)the screen switch activates hibernate and power saving;if you press the power button a screen will open informing you what programs are currently working.by shutting down you have caused an illegal command.
hopefully if you restart in safemode then shut down correctly and restart every thing should be ok.
