How To Force Shutdown Samsung Galaxy Tab

I just faced this problem with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. I installed few Flash supported browsers for Android like Phantom Browser and Dolphin Browser. Then I opened several videos in multiple tabs. And my Galaxy Tab started hanging intermittently. I tried to shutdown my tab, but it didn't work. Generally you need to press and hold power button for about 3 seconds to get the shutdown menu. As it didn't work, I tried installing few Android Shutdown apps from Google Play Store to shut it down programmatically. But those apps needed root access that I don't have and don't know how to get that permission.
But there's a way around. Just press and hold the power button for about 10-15 seconds. Then Galaxy Tab will be rebooted. After rebooting, your Galaxy tab will start normally and you can try shutting it down by pressing power button for a few seconds. It should work now.
