check /etc/fstab.
the partition containing the kernel could be set to ro (3d column from teh  
right) and fsck disbaled by setting the 1st column from the right to 0.
but that's curing merely symptoms -- it does not help w/ the apparent  
if fsck runs on _every_ boot than the shutdown is not clean.
what partition types are you using?
before shutting down next time try to switch to runlevel 1 and remount the  
partitions ro (you will need to do that via ssh, i think)

mount /dev/whatever /yourmountpoint -o remount,ro

and shut down. does the fsck occur at the next boot?
