As the title suggests, I cannot shut down my ibook g4 (specs of the model are under my avatar). I'm running 10.4.7.

This isn't a huge deal since I never shut it down. But the last two times I went on road trips with ibook in tote, the only time I shut it down, I had to manually shut down.

I've tried everything: apple menu to shut down; logging off then shutting down; putting it back to sleep, waking it up, then shutting down . . . . Nothing but holding down the power button seems to work.

I don't think it's a big deal (really I hope it's not a big deal), but I'm wondering if I should get it checked out while I'm still under applecare. It runs out until December. If anyone can lead me to the right direction, I'd appreciate it big time!
