A period of nothingness that is needed to recharge your batteries. Not answering phones, emails, texts, or doing anything that requires communication with anyone. It's "me" time on a more selfish level.
After multiple projects at work being thrown at her, endless requests from husband, and a schedule that would make anyone's heads spin, her friend, kindly gave her some advice one day,...after hearing her vent for an hour. Whit, I don't know what to do!! It's just getting too nuts,..I can't take it anymore....says Mindy. Girl, you just need to take a day, and just "Shut it Down"

To end a situation of your making because it has gotten out of control.

To call an end to a situation that is heading in a direction you don't like.

Usually used in a humorous manner to highlight that you don't approve of a situation
You organise a work social event and after a few hours it is descending into drunken chaos so you call 'OK, shut it down'.

You and friends go to see a movie that turns out to be of poor quality or distasteful so as it gets to a particularly bad scene you call 'Shut it down' as you walk out.

Something that a person needs to stop doing, immediately.

“Paula dropped her onion rings all over the ground. She said that’s God’s way of telling her to shut it down!, and stop eating.”

When someone is in the wrong, or someone " tries" you (makes you out to be stupid), it is time to shut them down. For instance, when someone tries to talk to your boyfriend/girlfriend then it's time to shut it down. Meaning, stopping the whole situation permanently.
