Try holding in the power button for about 8 seconds untill you feel 3 quick buzzes. It should then turn off. You can reboot it now by pushing the power button one time like normal.

Re: HELP ..N8..Phone freezes and will not turn off

Hmmm, I am not sure if there is another way. Since the battery is not removable for users and the 8 second -3 buzzes press don't work, I don't think there are another way to get it off.

Try connect the charger to it and do the 8 second press again, if not I think you will have to either let the battery run out untill it turns off it self or take it to a Nokia care point.

You can check here for care points in your country: http://www.nokia.nl/support/herstellingen/repair-and-recycle-main

Re: HELP ..N8..Phone freezes and will not turn off

Oh, it did work then? Well that's good. Did you install anything on it before this happened?

If you experience the same issue agian, I suggest you visit a Nokia care point to make them have a look at it.

On my N8 I used a pen on the top power button and had to hold for nearly 20 seconds.....then just like that it turned off. Everything was normal after powering back on!
