system not shutting down


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
Try putting the CD back in.
You can also bring up the Force Quit dialogue box by typing command-option-escape
