    Either you didn't install your system with ACPI or your system is not ACPI compatible. You can check that by going to your Device Manager and if it says under Computer "Standard Computer" instead of "Advanced Power Configuration and Interface" then your Comp won't shutdown automatically.

    Try going to Power Options in Control Panel and look for a tab called APM.Check off the box and try shutting down.Hope this helps.
