whenever i reboot my server (ad server, exchange, dns, dhcp), it takes around 15 minutes to shut down, and then once it reboots, it take 15-25 minutes for me to get to a login prompt.  what is causing it to take so long?

Exchange can take a while to shut down.  Restart problems are usually related to DNS and DS access problems - those will be in the event logs as big reds or warnings.

What is the source of the 1054 error - it can just indicate the DHCP server shutting down, which may be normal if the server is shutting down. See http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=1054&source=
