machine fails to shutdown

failed shutdown sequence 1
Description of problem:
Pressed the power button. When the "shutdown this system now" dialog appeared I selected Shutdown. The machine started to shutdown, the screen went black, I shut the lid and put the laptop in a bag. A few hours later when I got it out of the bag, I found that it was EXTREMELY HOT. I opened it up and found that it had gotten stuck during the shutdown, see 1.jpg. I then hit ctrl+alt+del which then caused the shutdown to continue one more step, but then get stuck again, see 2.jpg. Again I hit ctrl+alt+del and the shutdown continued, see 3.jpg, and ultimately powered off.
I consider this to be a very serious issue. It has potential to damage hardware.
Would it be possible to have a kernel based watchdog timer shut the power off if things go wrong?

I believe this is a duplicate of an already reported bug.
