My Tab S 8.4 is still unrooted.
I tried going into download mode to just check the KNOX status.
Unfortunately you cant turn it off or pull the battery out!
Doesnt work when pressing Power + Vol UP + Menu or Power + Vol Down + Menu or just holding the Power.

Here's what i did. In Download Mode, Press and hold Power + Vol UP + Vol DOWN
It should restart the device successfuly.

I hope it helps.

On my 10.5, power + Vol Down is enough.

Absolutely correct. All that is required is hold VOLUME DOWN + POWER nothing else until it restarts.

All you probably did there was as above as you had the VOLUME DOWN button pressed.The procedure can be used anytime the tab s is on. Its the equivelant of a battery pull.
