What model and OS are you using? In the past I've had OS9 hang during shutdown because of an application that wouldn't quit but I just hit power button.

What happens when you try to shut down?

Do the computer crash?

If so you probably have a bad preference file.

Does it still happen when extensions are off?

TD might be right about an application failing to quit, but I think you get a specific error message when that happens.

You can use an application called PeekABoo to see what applications are running...

Force a restart and see if that doesn't clear it up. If you're in Mac OS X, did you try to install a Mac OS 9 app in classic? If so and you tried a restart in classic, you may have trouble shutting down OS X. But if you force a restart you should be fine.
