I was able to find this information which I hope helps you with your problem:

Mirror Agent Error

The "Mirror Agent" is the software that keeps your local copy of your iDisk in "sync" with your remote copy.
It could be that you had made changes at Homepage and the files had not yet been "synced" to your local copy.
If it happens often you can turn off the "automatic" syncing feature.
If it continues to be a problem, try opening your Activity Monitor and quit MirrorAgent from the processes list, then shut down.

Personally, I don't see any reason to shut off the computer. Leaving it running is not going to hurt anything or cause any damage. Putting it to sleep would be a better option if you need to transport it.
