CUBASE never shuts down

CUBASE never shuts down, I always have to end task
the first window closes, but the top bar stays
any idea why this is a thing.

Insert vst file system still opens expanded

When you close the Project Window, that closes that Project but it does not close Cubase itself. The command File>Quit closes the Cubase program. If you use it while a Project is still open it will close both the Project & Cubase. It will also prompt to save any changes if they have been made to the Project.

Acustica Audio plugins by any chance ?

There is also a good reason why it does not shut down the whole program in the first place.
When you just want to change your project Cubase will not have to load the complete DAW and all it’s assets again, just the new project.
