Thank you so much this solution worked 100% for me. I had a Word document on Windows Server which kept saying it's locked for editing by a user but the users computer was switched off. I tried …
1. Open MMC by running the command mmc.exe, then go to "File, Add/Remove Snap-in...".
2. After clicking on "Shared Folders" and then "Add >", a properties box will open. Point the snap-in to the server that hosts the file in question, and, if you'd like, choose the view you would like to see. I usually choose "All", but you can select "Open Files" to only see that view.
3. Expand the "Shared Folders (\\servername)" tree and select "Open Files". Once you have located the file on the right, right-click on it and select "Close Open File". It will give a warning before actually executing your request, just in case you accidentally chose the wrong one.

So this is a quirk about how SharePoint is told to release the lock in my experience. Try having the end user open the file and before closing with the X use File -> Close to exit the document.
