How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have windows vista, and ipad fresh 4.2.1, RC5 green poison. Jailbreak fails each time. I have good internet connection. Each time I try to turn off my Ipad it turns on while putting in DFU mode. The computer dings as if it is in DFU mode, the green poison recognizes it, I hit jailbreak and a few minutes later I get a failed. Any ideas??
