Might be a program refusing to stop.

I've got the same problem, and as anskyber has said, in my case that is the cause. It doesn't happen all the time, but trying to find the offending program is a major headache, and I don't know the answer.
This is no help, but I just wanted to say that your not alone, and it does get annoying.
