Were you trying to revert back to Win7?
Windows 10 - Go Back to Previous Windows
If not what do you mean by downgrading back to Win7?
Were you on Windows 10 for more than 30 days?

Yes, press the power button. The worst that can happen is you are still in the same mess.
Typically if an upgrade or rollback is interrupted in mid-stream it is designed to revert things to their previous state when it is restarted. I had several upgrades during the Win10 preview period get stuck and when interrupted things always rolled back to the last build I had installed.
You're going to get absolutely nowhere until or unless the machine is powered up again.

Do you have any backups made before? Or any bootable media? You can reinstall the system with them.

Advanced Startup Options - Boot to in Windows 10
I have had very good luck on using their recommendations on the computers I've serviced in order to revert back to the prior OS issues
I can't guarantee it will work in your case, but I would try their recommendations.
To get things started, press and hold the off button to force the computer to shut down at least twice.
A couple if times it took me 4 forced shutdowns.
The idea is it will help you get into the advanced startup options
