    try this

    open regedit

    Hkey_Local_Machine/system/controlset001/control

    then change waittokillservicetimeout to a lower number like 3000 or 4000...that way xp will wait less time before killing services as it shuts down

    its best not to have it too low, cause then services have at least a chance to shutdown normaly.
    probably doesn't matte though

    If u r using a NIVIA-base video card, go to administrative tools. Click Services and select NVIDIA Driver Helper Service.
    Press stop button and change startup type to Manual.
    That should speed up the shutdown process.

    Are you on a network? If so, the system is unloading the protocols required for you to connect to the network and there isn't much you can do to speed up that process.
