virtual server stuck in "turning off" state

On of our VMs is stuck in the "turning off" state. All I can do is edit configuration. How do I fix this? I want to shut down and restart.

Also could try restarting Virtual Server service...however, it still would down any other VM's that were running.  I had to shutdown my other VM's, and then I had to manually kill VMH.EXE and VSSRVC.EXE and restart the Virtual Server service in Control Panel as the Virtual Server service itself seemed to be hung with a processor utilization of 25%.

thanks skshoup. I guess the thought though is that if all your VMs are down and nothing else is relying on your host you might as well do a clean reboot instead of killing processes and restarting them. good idea though.
