How to recover a frozen system?

My system froze and I’m unable to access the virtual console by pressing Ctrl + Alt + <any function key>. The magic SysRq key isn’t enabled by default in Fedora.

What other options I have? This may not be a full “lockdown”, my download appears to be running on the background and network-related processes are reported as active.

I don’t have an SSH server or any other remote gateway open.
