Well since no one answered and I did research myself I will put this out there to help anyone else with similar problems.
There is a recall for the Combination Meter. The Combination Meter is the LED cluster display (shows how much fuel you have, speed, whether you are in D, N, or R and also all the lights like Check Engine, Temperature (little snowflake), Red Triangle, Seat Belt, etc). It has been known to go completely blank which completely freaked me out. Somehow, in my case, it came back on for unknown reasons. Just be aware that there is a recall and you should contact your nearest Toyota Dealer to get it replaced hopefully for free.
Additionally, I also found a way to reset your system. You simply unplug your battery for about 30 minutes. You would unplug the little connector and that should help bring the Combination Meter back on.
I didn't have to check the battery or replace it for now but if the problem persists, I have learned the battery might also be the culprit.
Lastly, for the car not wanting to shut off. You would do the following: Push On/Off button for 3 seconds. That will shut off your engine. Then push button again 2 times quickly. That will completely shut off all your power so that you can rest assured the car indeed is completely turned off. Then the key will easily slide out of the key fob port.
I hope this helps someone, someday.
