I have a VM, that I powered off but it is showing in vmware as still powered on.  I am unable to migrate or move it, error says this is not allowed in its current state.  It is definitely powered off, but I cant figure out how to get it powered back on now?

Thanks

No, won't affect 'power state' of other VMs, but host WILL show as 'disconnected' briefly. Should be almost non-disruptive to production though.
