Try pressing the Reset button on the cabinet. That should restart it and then you should be able to shut down normally.

The PSU will likely have an on/off switch

Hold in the power button for 6 seconds or more - it will then almost certainly stop running.

Give us some details about you PC and software, and someone may be able to help you make it shut down properly.

It may well be that you need to enable auto shut down Go into control panel - Admin tools - computer management and click device manager - select view and then select view hidden devices lokk for APM power open it up and then double click the apm device revealed - enable it for use and your problem may be cured
