    For those of you whose power button broke...

    Just today, I've noticed that my power button doesn't have the same spring-back response when pushing it.

    For now I can still use the button without much problem, but does anyone have any idea how long I have until it breaks permanently?

    Thanks!

    I would imagine that would completely depend on how much you use it and how hard you are on it. Obviously.

    This does not help your issue but on the Droid X, you can push the home button to wake the phone :)

    ^ good post....
    Mine has always been kinda soft/spongy when pressed. Never really felt like a real pushable button. There have been threads about it, from what I remember, there were about the same number of people with buttons like mine compared to those with fuller, clickable power buttons. Mine works just fine, 7 months in.

    Tried it with my Droid, didn't work.
    But sliding the keyboard just a little bit did (took longer then the power button, I think).

    I use the power button a lot so I don't accidentally press any buttons. The search button in the lower right hand corner I press a lot:tongue:.
