When stuck at "please wait" window trying to shutdown, pressing
ESC few times may help to get to "it's now safe" prompt.

Another tip for shutdown ,
Goto: Start-Run: type MSCONFIG
go to advanced options and put a check on:
Enable Pentium F0 (Lock CmpXchg) workaround

To restore the proper 98 shut down
function I had to check the "Disable fast shut down" box.
Another way to achieve this is to edit the Registry. Run Regedit and go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Shutdown
Modify the "FastReboot" string in the right hand pane to read 0 (Win98's
default value is 1).
NOTE: Any changes made to these settings require a reboot!

I found after three days of researching all those that you have outlined above, but the problem still occured. The solution to this problem is on the software side of Windows CE Activesync version. I found out that the 3.0 version was causeingthis problem so I updated the Activesync to Version 3.1 and the problem went away
