tomcat never stops - getting skeleton icon


I have recently got a problem where tomcat does not stop between restarts & a "skeleton" icon appear that allows me to kill the process. This happens ever time and is getting quite annoying - does anyone know why intellij cannot stop tomcat or how I can debug this issue further? PS - this happens in tomcat 6 & 7 and has been happening on & off in all versions of 11..

when you press 'Stop' button IDEA calls 'catalina.bat stop' command (unless you changed the default shutdown script in 'Startup/Connection' tab of the
Tomcat run configuration). If the server isn't stopped by this command may there is a problem in your application or in the Tomcat itself. You can
look for exceptions in Tomcat logs.
