Can you explain a bit more? How slow is slow? 1 minute? 2 minutes? 5 minutes? 10 minutes? Have you tried using a startup manager? Cleaning out the system tray? Its hard to analyze a problem like this without knowing specific information. Post back with that info and anything else you have tried or might be helpful to solving this issue.

Hi,

40 seconds isn't that slow for a shut down.... It's actually pretty fast. I'm not a gamer so I can't help you with the games question.
