That sounds like a horribly common bug:

I don't really know what to suggest. Try this:
1. Open a konsole (Alt + F2, konsole, enter)
2. Try to shutdown the machine by typing:
sudo shutdown -h now
3. Observe the messages it displays on the konsole - if you can write them 
down, they might help fix the problem.

Try holding the power button down for over 6 seconds.
