Won't shutdown until second attempt

I'm using Garuda Xfce and when I attempt to shut it down the first time it goes to the desktop, only until I try again will it work?
I've searched for a similar topic but found none with this issue.

Thanks.

Hopefully, someone pops by with a better suggestion; but...

Have your tried adding a shutdown shortcut to your panel or dock? One you can just left click on once to shutdown w/out using a menu to get to it; or is that what you're using?

Pending a better suggestion, you could always use (from terminal):

shutdown now

^^ to shutdown; or...

shutdown -r now

^^ to reboot.

It should work OOTB. Check troubleshooting methods

In standard Arch installation, you don't need sudo for such.
