it's broke. How about a little more info, like the operating system, and does it hang, or do nothing, or what exactly?

What this usually means is that some program is not shutting down, which prevents the OS from reaching the point in the shutdown procedure where the power supply is told to shut down.

The easiest way to fix this is to reformat. I say this because there are usually more problems than just the one you are experiencing, but you only notice this one.

Other things you might try are reviewing the running processes and making sure you know what they all are, and running a complete virus scan and spy-ware scan.

It could be the OS isn't seeing the hardware as ACPI compliant. You may need to reinstall the OS so it sees it.
