It doesn't matter what your "10 different links" say. It matters what the manual says. And the manual says to use "shutdown immediate". If it takes forever, it's probably an old version or a bug of some kind and you should work with Oracle support to resolve it. If shutdown immediate is taking forever, there is a problem. Your "10 different links" will not resolve it. Oracle support might.
