If you are asking about fisical existence, then no: it is impossible to exist without occupying space (but again, it also depends on your definition fo the opposite of omnipotent. For me, it is that something is nowhere).

Impotence certainly exists; many men suffer from it.

I found this definition of omnipotence on wikipedia:

Omnipotence (literally, "all power") is power with no limits or inexhaustible, in other words, unlimited power. This trait is usually attributed only to God.
So i think the opposite of omnipotence would be "something with no power whatsoever".
