Usually on shutdown you run sync that flushes the cache to the disk,
cleanly preparing the disk for unmounting. The mount command should
'run' sync automatically when unmounting.

You run fsck on power up because the 'system does not remember' if it
was shut-off cleanly or not. If the disks are clean and the last check
is not too old, fsck just report this and does nothing. Else it takes
care of the safety of your data.

fsck may take time. Relax, it needs that time.
