Recently I've been getting disk type NTFS, I've already checked and disk type is NOT dirty. This isn't a result of my computer crashing (it doesn't crash) however, when I shut down my computer it doesn't power down completely, I have to wait until the monitor goes blank and then turn the tower off by the button on the case, I have a feeling that has something to do with it.

Yes, that is leaving the "dirty" bit set which causes a chkdsk to run on next boot. You need to solve the shutdown problem.

Try opening Task Manager, Processes tab. Leave the window open and visible then start a shutdown. If it doesn't complete, start ending likely processes until shutdown does complete. That will tell you what is causing the hang.
