    When you say "stuck" what do you mean? Is it not responding at all? If that's the case, chances are you'll need to wait for the battery to die, honestly.

    If you can still access the interface to some degree, you'd need to enable usb debugging (through "Developer Options") and run "adb reboot" from your PC with ADB installed. I can give you some more details there, but it's not worth it if your phone is truly locked up.

    Also... are you sure the power button is actually broken? Have you not been able to use it for some time? If it's just related to this freeze, hold power and volume down for about twenty seconds, and that may force it to reboot.

    If you had ADB enabled it might still work, but you can't control the phone from your laptop at all without having it enabled first.
