Do you mean it just 'hung' on the shutdown and did not switch itself off properly?

When mine did this (it's happened a couple of times) I just held the power button in (on the tower) for about 5 seconds then it switched the pc off, I then pressed it again to boot the pc up and then when I did the proper shutdown from 'Start' 'Turn off Computer' it shut down as it should do.

There could be something still running.

Hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete to bring up the link to the Task Master and check the Application and Processes tabs' contents.
