How are you attempting to shut it down (prior to hitting the power button)?
Im sure your not far off base from the correct order..
Click the Apple in the top left...
then select shut down..
then select shut down now, or let the timer do it all on its own after 60 seconds..
Just to make sure you have all the programs closed you can press... Command&Option&Delete at the same time and that will show you whats running.. up front of in the background (not maximized).
