    My power button just quit working on my Droid. It wont work to turn off or wake up. The camera button makes the phone wake up though? WTF?? Running BB froyo 2.2. Heard some ROMs have a setting in spare parts that allows programming of the power button, bu not in mine.... HELP!!

    I don't really know how to solve your problem but if you can still get it on somehow, then I suggest just unroot and take it in. A faulty power button is covered in your warranty (I'm sure you know that though). What I'm saying is either way try not to get all stressed out because worst case you get a replacement.

    So, after it wakes up using the power button can you access your apps? If so, are you using ROM Manager? If you are couldn't you use RM to reboot into recovery, wipe and then restore a different backup you have saved?
    Just a suggestion - I am new to the world of rooting. Hope it all works out for you!

    It is. Thank the lord bc i dropped mine like two days ago on my garage floor and the battery and the door to it came out. So i pop everything back in and the power button didn't work. So i managed to get it on but i didn't call VZ bc i needed to do a SBF restore.
