I've had mine lock up on me a couple times now. Any way to force it to power off/reboot without removing the battery?

Hold power for 10-15 sec until it reboots

Mine didn't work. Is it OS based? I'm using Cyanogenmod 11. I was using PPSSPP and I rotated to go landscape and the whole phone just froze. I don't have fingernails, well barely, so it's hard for me to pry the back off.

Keep holding it, it will reboot eventually. Maybe after 30 seconds

I tried holding it down for a minute, used a stopwatch. It was a no-go. Maybe it's for the stock ROM.

Try power + vol up, if that doesn't work try power + vol down

Its a bios feature it should work on every device

Running stock 10m and pressing power also does nothing, no matter how long. Pulling the battery is the only (annoying, because of protective cover) option.

No, that only works after a reboot/when the device is powered off. Not while device is hanging/powered on. Pressing power simply does nothing at all.
