    You will have to very well try little long pressing the power button. If that does not fix the issue, try performing a factory reset. If still the issue is not resolved, there are possibilities that it can be an issue with the screen lock. You will have to go to the Settings page of the device. Then click on the option that denotes Security. Choose Screen Lock. Finally you will have to choose Slide for activating the ‘screen unlock slider’ that can be seen while resuming from the sleep mode. This may fix the issue.

    Most of the Android devices requires a very long HARD press of the power button to get it shut down. Better try this to get the device shut down it self. If there is no problem with the Power Button,then this thing should work fine.

    There is no Alternate way to Switch it Off, You can use all the Energy of the Battery and dry it down to shut down the system but then you wont be able to start it if you have problem with Power Button, Check the power Button by taking the device to service station and they will solve your problem.

    Good Luck

    Hello Friend,
    You have to do following...
    1. Reset your tablet.
    2. Press power button for a long time and hardly too.

    If these solution doesn't solve your problem then go to care and tell them tablet is not working properly.

    I will recommend you to press the power button for a little long time. If your device doesn't take any action then according to me you must have to reach to the nearest service center to solve your problem because they will fix it easily.

    At such moment ,data losing becomes very crucial,So one is needed to save the unsaved data first if it is behaving abnormally while shutting down

    One is required to pull out the batteries from back which will set the device shutdown.

    So you are required to go for factory reset once ,because of some deleterious virus along with scanning
