Default [Q] Force Off Phone

My phone is having many many issues, and I can not get it to power off. I've held the power button down for minutes on end but it won't do anything. And to be specific, I'm not in a Rom trying to do this, I'm stuck in some sort of "grey" screen hell. If I plug into my computer, ADB recognizes it and will even pull a device number, but the phone will not respond to any command. I'm really just trying to get to the fastboot screen so I can hopefully flash the RUU.

Any help would be greatly appreciate.

Thanks

You have to hold power+vol up. I think it's something like 10 sec.

Hold up on volume and power at the same time, this is equal to a battery pull and as soon as the phone turns off hold volume down and power to enter fast boot.

I did that for several minutes. It never actually powered off. Fortunately the battery died, and I was able to plug the phone back in and then do what I needed.

Thanks guys!
