shutdown doesn't do anything, winXP

I have a bash script that runs rsync and I have been trying to add a 
command to shutdown the computer after the backup has finished running.

I have added,

shutdown -s now

and also tried,

shutdown -s 5
shutdown -x now
shutdown -x 5

but the computer doesn't shut down. Running which shutdown gives me,

/usr/bin/shutdown

so I know its there.

Any suggestions?
