Yea make sure to exit any programs before shutting down will speed it up. Also make sure if you have any AV or spyware removal programs that they do not have any settings to scanning the drives at shutdown.

You can also turn off any additional services you are not using and this will speed up shutdown. They are websites that you can find on google that will tell you what all the services do and if they are safe to turn off in windows.
