I SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE AND IT IS BEEN ALMOST 2HOURS AND IS NOT DONE
ALERT.LOG MESG ='SHUTDOWN: waiting for logins to complete."
If you really want to shutdown in a hurry, you can do a shutdown abort. For some reason Oracle is doing a shutdown normal. You can also stop the service in the service control panel. This might be resolved with a patch, if you can find 188.8.131.52. Otherwise 8i has a lot of features that are worth a look, so does 9i.
If some transaction in progress, it will try to kill the transaction, if able to kill, wait for rollback to complete.
if not able to kill any transaction, it will wait for it to complete.
