    Hi Guys,

    I have a windows 2003 server with exchange 2003 installed on it, evertime we
    shut it down, we make sure that we stop the Exchange services first to speed
    it up, but then the server just seems to stop responding with a light blue
    background (not a blue screen error screen).

    we left it like this all night but it still didnt shut down and restart.

    Any ideas

    What else is installed on the server?
    Did you check the event logs?

    I am having this problem also.
    I just built this server a few weeks ago.
    It started with just slow shutdowns, then got longer over a week and now
    won't shut down or restart....just sits at the blue screen.
    I can still move the mouse on the screen, but no reaction from the keyboard.
    Power down is the only way out.
    No errors in the event log.
    This server is 2003 used as a file server and running CA brightstor backup.
    It has all the updates.
