How do I perform a soft reset of my Note4?

My fingerprint scanner disabled about 24 hours ago. I have not used the backup password since I changed it approximately 3 or 4 months ago and can not remember what it Is.. I have tried: I tried all possible combinations of passwords even locking myself out more. I removed the battery and left it out for a few minutes and put it back in. I logged onto my Samsung account but my device is not showing as registered.. I think it was caused by: I have been having intermittent issues where my phone randomly locks even while it is in use, but have no idea what locked me out completely.

    As your device is locked out completely, then the soft reset, which can be performed by pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds until the device turns off, might not help you.
