The custom keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Alt+k. After using this shortcut, it takes 30-60 seconds for everything to shutdown.

Lately when I do this, the screen will just show the elementary logo on a black background, at which point I have to use the laptop power button to shut it down (can't open terminal, etc.)

FYI I use a Lenovo Ideapad 3, run elementary OS 5.1.7 Hera only, and there are no other distros on my pc.

If you simply bound the shortcut to shutdown the default behavior for that is to schedule a shutdown in 60 seconds. You probably want to bind to the command:

shutdown now
