First, enter BIOS setup and make sure that ACPI mode is enabled. This is usually under power management or advanced settings.

Next, open up Device Manager.
Click on View, Show Hidden Devices.
Expand the Computer Branch.
Right click on ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) and select Enable.

Close device manager and restart. The system should now shut down on it's own.
