Linux will not shut down properly (Kubuntu, and Mandriva)?

I recently started to explore the world of linux by trying live Cds of both Kubuntu and Mandriva. All three times i have done this, My computer fails to shut down. I have to hard shut down.

Since hard shutting down a computer supposedly bad for it i am afraid to use linux any more.

It gets to the kill processes and then several fail and it just sits their. Then i have to do a hard shut down.

So A. I am not very tech smart so is their an easy way to fix this?

or B. Should i not worry about hard shutting down. (its a live disk so he hard drive shouldn’t be moving, right?)

Either way, an easy fix would be a god send
