realize the machine were you run condor_off must be listed in your HOSTALLOW_ADMINISTRATOR setting in the config file (to prevent just anyone from shutting off condor).

If you are impatient, try
    condor_off -fast
the -fast option tells condor to be more agressive, such as don't checkpoint the job before shutting down, etc.

Also realize that the condor_master will stick around after the other daemons exit in case you later wanna do  condor_on.

shutting down nicely is always better, but in theory Condor should recover from any rug pulling.
