    Mine takes just under 10 seconds to shut down...
    Maybe worth a hard reset, have you instaled many apps, it could be a poorly coded app, failing that I would send it back for repair........

    How do you do a hard reset? I have installed a few apps about 7-8 all free they are 4 star and higher rated.

    Common problem. Some say unmounting the SD card before shutting down helps.

    Failing that you could try killing the apps before shutting down....

    My Desire Z also seemed not to want to shut down. When I selected shut down, the screen would dim and look as though it had shut down, but if I pressed the power button it would do an "HTC splash" and start tune, then go immediately to the desktop, so it clearly hadn't booted.

    I found this was just because of the "fast boot" setting. I switched this off (it's in Settings->Applications) and my phone now shuts down properly.
