I usually don't recommend this but...
Can't you close it with the power button?
If not, then remove your laptop battery, wait a bit, and then put it back in, and start your PC...
You may see a Windows did not hut down corectlly...bla, bla,bla... screen. Don't worry, just select it to start normally.... :hello:
