Just use the "Undeploy a vApp" workflow and set the vCloud:UndeployPowerActionType to "force". This will force the whole vApp and vms off and into an undeployed state which will, in turn, allow you to delete the vApp Smiley Wink

Have you tried to power off the individual VMs ? Maybe one of them is set to shutdown and does not.
