system not shutting down

Hey,

I had my cdrom stuck in the system and the application using the cdrom was also hung. I used force quite to quit the application but the cdrom refused to eject. I therefore tried to open it with the pin and thjough I have taken out the cdrom but there is stilla light on the cdrom and the system is not shutting down. It is just showing a moving icon of cdrom on a finder window. WHat can I do to restart the system.

You could also try a force quit. Pull down the Apple Menu to Force Quit and force quit whatever is preventing the shut down
