The computer should still be under warranty.
I recommend you return it to the seller.
Computers should not have problems after only four weeks of ownership.

Does it show any message about it safe to switch off, if yes, its software, check Acers website for any updates to your recovery software.

If not, then its either your psu or motherboard not sending/receiving a switch off signal, RMA to Acer and tell them that it happened within the 28 days replacement warranty period and that you have already reported it to support line, this will stop them insisting on a repair and not a new unit swapout.

Stick too your guns and don't accept a repair.

Have you checked the event viewer to see if there's a system or application error at the time you're shutting down?

I have an Acer myself but its working fine. I'm a tech and fix my own problems. Have you tried to do a system restore from the f8 boot up?, i had to do that on my acer once.
