Does this problem occur everytime when you try to shutdown the PC? –  clel Nov 1 '12 at 14:44
Yes, it happens every time :( –  Newton Nov 1 '12 at 14:45
Do you have any network filesystem mounted or any other networking service active? –  qbi Nov 1 '12 at 14:53
I have a folder shared on my local network –  Newton Nov 1 '12 at 15:18

Well, if it has almost shutdown but just won't halt/poweroff (which is what anything related to acpi usually means), then just use the power button to halt it/power it off.
