    Check your power options
    control panel - > power options-> advanced tab -> then change the setting "when i press the power button...." to shutdown

    If there is an APM tab, make sure the “Enable Advanced Power Management Support” box is checked

    the APM/NT Legacy Power Node may not be enabled. To enable this, right-click on the My Computer icon, click Properties | Hardware | Device Manager | View. Check the box labeled “Show Hidden Devices.” If it’s available on your computer, there will be a red X on the APM/NT Legacy Node. Try enabling it and see if this resolves the powerdown problem

    loads of other things to try here
