    try mineral oil. put some mineral oil around the button. Use very little. See if that helps. (Disclaimer: I claim no responsibility for this solution if it destroys your device)

    Consequently, you don't need your power button to turn your phone on or wake it up from sleeping.

    1. Use your power cord to turn on the phone when off.
    2. Use your slide out keyboard to wake up the phone.

    don't open it, just place a little oil around the power button, as much as you can around the openings, without putting too much.

    Are you rooted? I had the same problem with mine. I fixed it for a while but it eventually got dirty again and stuck. If you're rooted I recommend getting the app Button Remapper. It allows you to change the functions of buttons. I changed my camera button to be used for power in Wake and Sleep mode. Problem solved.
