At least in KDE, the GUI shutdown won't shut down the system if there are
programs that refuse to exit. For example if you have a program that pops up
a window asking if you're sure you want to quit (eg. konversation) KDE won't
exit, and the box won't shut down. Sometimes the programs refusing to exit
may be in the background so it's not immediately obvious what's happening, so
it can appear haphazard, but nearly always, the problem is with some other
program and not actually KDE's shutdown itself

Could that match what you're seeing? If not, you're going to have to be more
