Not an expert and hopefully Apple can confirm but I wonder if it is the machine state save so everything is as it was pun startup????

Same here. The shutdown is much slower than on leopard.
On leopard i could do it less than 5 seconds. Lion took me almost 10-15 seconds.
I know in terms of the animal kingdom speed hierachy, leopard wins hands down but come on... hehe

I'm sure the reason it takes longer is due to the Resume feature.

Lion takes also much longer to shut down here, actually longer than even booting, and every time I try.
Turning off the resume feature doesn't seem to make a difference, shutting down takes more than 10 seconds every time without exeption.
I have tried repairing permissions, checking processes, printing jobs, deleting caches, etc.
What's interesting, even if shutting off right from the login screen, it will take this long time...
I just don't understand it, maybe it's a feature that speeds up the following boot procedure?

Same here, takes about 20-30 sec to shut down
Hope there come a fix for this soon.

I actually tried all of the same things and nothing makes a difference in shudown speed. There is something different going on. Hopefully there will be updates later thta improves this.

hmm seems like i'm not the only one having this problem. I'm facing that problem and that make me disappointed with Lion

here, on a MacbookPro, shutdown takes exacly 4 minutes. SL about 10 seconds.

don't know if this helps but i'll throw it in here in case it helps anyone. i too had issues with a slow boot and shutdown since installing lion. i tried many things people suggested in various threads such as repairing permissions and verifying/repairing disk, clearing caches etc. what did work for me however, finding it by accident is... i noticed i could no longer play avi files. i had perian installed. apperntly the version i have needed upgrading so i did and to my surprise, it actually improved shutdown time. my shutdown went from nearly 30 second to just under 10 seconds. it improved my boot up from nearly a minute down to under 50 seconds. it's still a long time to boot compared to snow leaoprd but at this stage any improvement is a good thing. so i guess the things to look for possible causes of problems are incompatible software. either upgrade them to a lion friendly version or uninstall them if none are available.

From 30sec to 10? Your laptop really got problem. Snow leopard only took 3sec to shut down. My lion took 10-15sec I already complain. Why is your soo long?

I had the same problem specially with shutdown time (boot up not so much). What solved my problem was a clean re-install of Lion. After that, I didn´t restored from the backup, but instead I´m coping all of my stuff back. So far so good. Shutdown is almost instantly now (like SL).
I think that could be another clue towards bad apps (not compatible) causing the slowdown. I´ve alredy installed all the apps that I use regularly and everithing is fine. I heard that Java could be the culprit but I´m not sure how to check if it´s installed on my system. Anyway, clean install is wirth trying. Good luck!

On my Mac Pro it's also awfully slow.
It tooks between five and ten minutes (no kidding at all...).
My beautifull octocore, 24Gb ram with raid hardware is now as slow as the old Dell D620 my company gaves me with windows seven....
So happy \o/

Apple included EXTRA boot files for LION which makes the OS boot SLOWER, also the more apps you have on your mac or had open on your last session it will TAKE LONGER.
