    Please hello the geriatric Droid!

    My power button no longer works. I use the volume rockers to wake the screen but I need a way to map a button to turn it off. Also a reboot button.

    Keep up the great work!

    The button doesnt work AT ALL? That sounds like a hardware issue. I would take it apart, and look at it, see if I can fix it, but I dont have the phone in my hands. lol

    It works a little but you have to press it REALLY HARD.

    I've never taken my phone apart but I'm not against it. Just not sure what I can expect to find.

    There is an app(s) on the market that will allow you to remap buttons or at the very least use in place of the power button. I don't know one off hand since I have never tried but its worth a look.

    As in use your thumbnail on the power button? Me too...think I'm wearing it out. If this keeps up I'll have to start looking for mods.

    Yeah, that's a hardware problem. The way the D1 buttons are designed might explain it. There is a small (1/8th inch wide) convex metal disc that sits on top if a pair of surface contacts. When you push down on the button, it pushes the disc flat, and makes bridges the two surface contacts. If your disc is off-center, or your contacts are dirty, that would explain the issues your having. Its fixable. :-)

    My power button is also shot. The phone isn't 2 years old yet but I've abused it. It can take a beating. I also use the volume rocker to wake the phone. Quick Boot is a decent app for reboot options, and it is free. My upgrade is not until April so I'm not repairing it. A built in option to remap buttons would be outstanding.

    Installed a reboot app and a screen off app.

    Now I want to dismantle the phone and fix the power switch. Maybe i'll check YouTube...

    you know that Moto was nice enough to hardcode a hot key reboot similar to Alt-Ctrl-Delete except on the Moto keyboards it is ALT-CapButtonAboveALT-DEL

    not a fix for wake lock events but works well enough enough for reboots
    chevycam94 and DroidBurgundy like this.
