Remote Linux machine non-responsive, need to force *remote* reboot

I am away from my office and my Linux machine is powered on, but is non-responsive (cannot SSH, HTTP, etc).  Since I cannot SSH I cannot remotely access the machine to reboot it.  Is there any other crazy way to force the machine to reboot without using any direct physical contact with the machine?

I know this may be a dumb question, but I figured I would ask anyway.

Thanks (and just in case there are any concerns: yes it is my Linux machine and I am not hacking anything).

;-) You could try to find an exploit for the kernel version you are using and try it with that....

Otherwise phone someone that can access your house and ask if the person can do it for you...,

Otherwise I'm out of idea's....  If you need some special functionality like this that you need to
plan ahead.
