It sounds as if there is some kind of background application running which is eating up your processes. You need to kill the processes.

Using the shutdown -f -r -t 0 will work just fine for the time being.

Also if you do not know how to kill processes and find out what application is doing this then i suggest for the time being that you create a desktop shortcut and type in the shutdown -f -r -t 0 command in. From then on when you click on that icon the computer should shut down.
