what seems to happen?
what system are you running?
Does windows give you an error report ?
Is the system going into crash?
Have you installed any new programs?

Are leaving any usb devices, such as cameras, memory sticks, etc. connected?

If so, try disconnecting all before you shut down.

I think i found the answer to my problem,i recently installed realtime player on the computer,hadn't got around to using it until the weekend,when i opened it up i had a load of r't icons with the following messages attached as song titles 'system critical' 'battery low' 'replace battery'. with any bit of lusk when i replace the battery everything should be alright.
ps i had a good laugh when i saw my new song titles
