Are you using a laptop or a desktop?

Check you power management settings in Control Panel.

It is also be an issue with heat. If the system is a desktop insure that it is adequately being cooled.

Win98 is great for start and shut down problems. It could be heat or power settings or a TSR program. email me I will send you a flow chart that might help. zlito@aol.com
Power supplies can do this if they become unstable or hot. It could be a setting in windows that after a set amount of time it is suppost to shut down but dose not compleat.

If you are using Norton AntiVirus "Scan Floppies for boot viruses when shutdown...", disable this under Options, AutoProtect, Advanced. This can also cause hangups when shutting down.
