In your case it seems to happen much more often, that the service does
not shutdown in a timely manner. So this should actually be investigated

My remark regarding using a forced shutdown via ctrl+alt+-del is only
supposed to be a fix for very rare cases.

I also wouldn't consider it a proper fix to simply decrease the shutdown
timeout of the affected service. That's a hack at best.
