Try this first…

You have not indicated if the power button works or not. Try holding that down to power off. If that doesn’t work you may have to fully discharge the battery to power off… You can then recharge for a while and then power back up. If this recurs you may have bad hardware somewhere like failing RAM chip or something.

Actually, I sort of fixed it. I just let the laptop run in its loop unplugged from the AC outlet and let the battery run down to zero. I was able to reboot the computer when I repowered it.
