If you consider "resisting arrest => getting tazed", and "hunger strike => force feeding" as acceptable consequences for refusing to cooperate then "refuse to provide password => held in contempt of court" is always going to be an option for you.

In the first two examples, they gain your cooperation without your will.

When you are held in contempt, you still have to agree to cooperate to escape it.

worst case => you forget your password, now you can just be held in jail for life if judges don't believe you.
