I would say it is your lack of RAM Win 7 runs really slow with anything under 2 GB and preferably should have 4 GB. The slow down is because instead of the computer doing all of the tasks needed to shut down via the RAM it uses the hard drive via the page file which can slow even a modern system down to a crawl.

I actually did pretty good with 1.5gb and win7 with my laptop which I have used both an T2310 and a T7700 in. Maybe you have too many background apps running. Ever do a msconfig to keep unnecessary programs from starting up? Your lack of ram is making the job take longer, I do not argue that, but disabling programs you do not need running all the time would be a big help due to your low ram amount.
