Try pressing down power button for 15 seconds--if that does not work then you will need to remove the laptop's battery then put it back in.

Should be just like a desktop. Hold the power button down for five seconds or so and it should shutdown. If that does not work just unplug the laptop and then pull the battery it will shutdown then.

4 seconds. It's a standard. In ALL PCs and laptops I've seen this is the time it takes (unless the system itself manages to halt faster, which doesn't happen with Windows, even 8.1 :)) )
