Shutting down - a double take!

  1933 14:03 11 Oct 2005

System XP with SP2. Recently I have noticed that when I want to shut down and use START - TURN OFF and TURN OFF the last small window vanishes but the desk top and all programs are still there (I "Turned Off" before starting this query!!). A second Start, Off,Off works OK and the PC closes down. Any ideas would be most helpful. Dave

There is always a delay between the shutdown button isappearing and the Desktop closing, how long depends on the number of processes running, usually upto 5 secs.
