You cant actually hard reset your phone without a password which I forgot so? How can I power off my s6 edge without putting in a password?

Hi Elizabeth,
 
There should be no restriction to prevent powering your device off if you have forgotten your password. Do you get asked for it when you try to shut down the phone?
 
If you do, you can do this: press power button for about 10 seconds. The phone will turn off briefly and then restart. While it's turned off (it will be just 1-2 seconds) follow the procedure in the article I linked above to reset the phone from recovery menu.

To force reboot your device, press and hold the Volume down and Power/Lock keys on the device for 10-20 seconds. This performs a simulated battery disconnect.
