Default [Q] M8 won't turn off

I was attempting to install Venom Rom on my rooted and s-off m8 and while going through installation menus, I pressed aroma file explorer by accident when I meant to hit back.
The phone locked up right away.

I tried holding the power button for over two minutes, but the screen stays lit and completely unresponsive.

What can I do? I started with a full battery, how long will it take to turn the device off through battery drain?

I am using the latest twrp recovery and was already running the venom rom though I doubt that is relevant.

Switch the light on in your room then try again.

You need to press power and vol up and hold until it restarts. Can take some time, but it will eventually.
