Typically this is a symptom of either hardware incompatibility or of a constantly running program which should be killed first.
First try using the Shift-Restart method of doing a Shutdown, since just doing that sometimes shakes things up enough that it starts working properly again.
Alternatively, or if that is still not getting a proper shutdown, instead of physically disconnecting power try pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete to see if the Lock screen is still active. If so, login as Administrator and get into Task Manager to see if something
needs to be killed.
Also, I imagine there could be more details available about your problem shutdown in the Event log.
