Hello and welcome to JustAnswer services. This is Anas and I will be assisting you with your issue today. I am sorry for the troubles you are facing.
I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly. As I understand you are facing an issue with your Mac.

Please press and hold down the Power button for 10 seconds to turn it off. Then wait 5 minutes and press the power button to turn it back on.

Does that work?
